We believe that users must feel safe on Twitter in order to fully express themselves. As our General Counsel Vijaya Gadde explained last week in an opinion piece for the Washington Post, we need to ensure that voices are not silenced because people are afraid to speak up. To that end, we are today announcing our latest product and policy updates that will help us in continuing to develop a platform on which users can safely engage with the world at large.

They're trying, and that's commendable. This must be an incredible engineering problem.

No, just say nice and constructive things. If you are to differ with the given view, highlight and source your point of view. Bold and void statements are not going to help anyone. Like "I think..." or "One knows that..."

Unfortunately that rarely works on Twitter.

When someone says something stupid or controversial and you respond to it, however nice, your reply will be one of a hundred. And yes it will be taken as part of a harassement campaign, provided the OP is enough of a drama queen.

On Twitter, the only winning move is not to play.
