Twitter on Tuesday said it's updated its rules against hateful conduct to ban language that "dehumanizes" people because of their religion. Tweets that go against the new policy will be taken down, the company said.

Tweets posted before the new rule will have to be deleted if reported, Twitter said, but the account won't be suspended because it was sent before the policy was in place.
Twitter asked for user feedback about its hateful conduct policy last year and received more than 8,000 responses from people in over 30 countries. Many people asked the company to use clearer language when defining policy violations and to be more consistent in its enforcement of the rules.
