Moreover the angry Twitterati posted against the move. The updates last week were part of revamp to Twitter's policies surrounding online abuse. Further reacting to the latest controversy, Twitter posted: "We've identified an error with search results for certain terms. We apologize for this. We're working quickly to resolve & will update soon".

rules and its enforcement of them. Moreover Dorsey, in his announcement which
was a response to the WomenBoycottTwitter protest, said that the platform would
develop new rules for things like unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual
nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorify violence.
