San Francisco-based Twitter Inc., on Tuesday revised its strategy for fighting abusive internet “trolls”.

Chief Executive Jack Dorsey said Twitter now would try to find problematic accounts by examining behaviour such as how frequently people tweet about accounts that do not follow them.

It said it would use behavioral signals to identify harassers on the social network and then limit the visibility of their tweets.

Twitter’s rules already prohibit abuse, and it can suspend or block offenders once someone reports them.
