Twitter is updating its policies on unsafe links to patch one of its most abused loopholes. Starting Thursday, July 30th, the social network will censor tweets that link to hate speech and violence.

In a tweet, Twitter added that accounts that frequently tweet links featuring hateful conduct may also be potentially suspended. The social network tends to take action on unsafe links in one of the two ways: it will either completely ban a particular link so that it can't be tweeted at all or display a warning to anyone who clicks the link.
