Violence and threats


You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to, threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.

Take threats seriously 

If you believe you are in physical danger, contact the local law enforcement authorities who have the tools to address the issue.

If you decide to work with law enforcement, make sure to do the following:

  • Document the violent or abusive messages with print-outs or screenshots
  • Be as specific as possible about why you are concerned
  • Provide any context you have around who you believe might be involved, such as evidence of abusive behavior found on other websites
  • Provide any information regarding previous threats you may have received
