You've been able to to express your opinions on social media pretty much unregulated.  That's about to change.

According to the online giant Twitter has tweaked its policies to emphasize that it will take action against those who used the site to issue violent threats or promote hateful conduct.

The adjustments come at a time when critics have called for the social media site to take a firmer stance against extremist groups.

A number of sites have come under pressure from politicians and other critics who say militant extremists are using the Internet to recruit members and promote their agendas. Some critics say they welcome the new policy language - but say the more important thing is to see how Twitter enforces its rules.

So, fellow Twitts mind your P's and Q's when you Tweet!
