The Twitter app has been banned for using the word “buffer” in its app to help people keep track of the traffic that flows through their accounts.
The word “Buffer” was introduced by Twitter in April as an alternative to “receive” to better keep track on the flow of traffic through its platform.
Twitter says that the word is a common term for “a buffer between an email and a reply”, and that it should not be used in the app, although the company says it has no intention of banning the word altogether.
The app uses the word buffer to help users keep track, but Twitter says it is a matter for the app to decide how to handle its use.
Twitter is the latest company to have its terms and conditions changed or removed to reflect how the internet is evolving.
In February, Facebook was also ordered to remove the word in its Terms of Service, which states that it “may not include any offensive or inflammatory language or content”.
Twitter was one of several companies to be hit with changes to its terms in March, when the social media giant also decided to remove “fraud” from its terms.
The company’s terms and policies were changed in April following a court order from the US Supreme Court, which said the term “fudging” should not have been included in the terms of service because it could cause people to believe that the terms were misleading.
Facebook has been under fire for using terms such as “fake news” and “fake accounts” to try and target users, but the company has consistently insisted that it is not responsible for the content posted on its platform and that any content that is not “true, accurate, or current” is a “fake”.
The company said that it would be working with law enforcement authorities to ensure that it has “fair, accurate and accurate” content on its site, adding that it does not accept that the “terms of service of any other service are misleading or deceptive”.
The decision to ban the word was first revealed by a blog post on the site TechCrunch.
Twitter had previously said that the use of the word Buffer was “a common term” for “buffer between email and reply”.
The news was shared with the Twitter community by user “Dumb-C”, who posted a link to the article on the blog, saying: “I’m not a big Twitter user, but I read the post and I can’t get enough.
Thanks @Twitter for the clarification!”
