Twitter Introduces New Features To Fight Online Harassment & Abuse

Twitter is taking a revolutionary step and it will definitely change the way we perceive this social platform hereon. They had started the initiative to crack down online abusers as the platform has long been criticized as a hotbed for online harassment. Hence, they decided to roll out some features to stop the creation of new abusive accounts, abusive or low-quality tweets & safer search. The descriptions of newly launched features are as follows:


1. Stopping the creation of new abusive accounts: The feature will allow Twitter to identify people who have been permanently suspended and will stop them from creating new accounts. The company will focus effectively on accounts that reflects prevalent and damaging forms of behaviour, particularly accounts that are created only to abuse and harass others.

2. Introducing safer search results: The safesearch feature will remove potentially sensitive content and tweets from blocked or muted accounts from search results. The account will only be discoverable if the user does a manual search.

3. Collapsing potentially abusive or low-quality Tweets: The company has been working on bringing the relevant conversation to the forefront by identifying and collapsing potentially abusive and low-quality replies. These tweet replies will still be accessible to those who seek them out. This feature can be expected to roll out in the coming weeks.

Don’t you feel safer online already? Apart from these features, the platform has also announced that they will continue to present awesome changes to make a significant impact that people can feel.

This move may also save them from falling. Twitter made $717 million over the last three months. While that may sound impressive but in comparison Facebook made $8.8 billion over the same period. Facebook brought in $14.83 per user while Twitter had $7.93 per user. They’re losing executives, money, advertisers, investor confidence, and respect from developers and creators. But seems like there are better days ahead.
