Suicide or self-harm

Suicide or self-harm

You may not promote or encourage suicide or self-harm. When we receive reports that a person is threatening suicide or self-harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them, such as reaching out to that person and providing resources such as contact information for our mental health partners.

If you or someone you know is at risk of self-harm or suicide, you should seek help as soon as possible by contacting agencies specializing in crisis intervention and suicide prevention.

After we assess a report of self-harm or suicide, Twitter will contact the reported user and let him or her know that someone who cares about them identified that they might be at risk. We will provide the reported user with available online and hotline resources and encourage them to seek help.
