Feminist twitter wars of January 2014 Edit
Disagreement policy Edit
Beginning in late October 2014, Twitter began accepting reports for "disagreement with my opinion" as a category of "abusive or harassing behavior."
WAM Partnership Edit
In early November 2014, Twitter granted the activist group Women, Action, and the Media (WAM) authority to read abuse reports and mark them for expedited action by Twitter administrators. WAM is composed of two individuals, Jaclyn Friedman and Mina Farzad. 
A November 7 news article about this arrangement by Robinson Meyer of The Atlantic opens by making references to threats against Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkeesian,  which the news media has widely blamed on critics of corruption in games journalism. This led to speculation that the arrangement might be intended to identify and censor critics and whistleblowers.
