Making Twitter Safer


— #Twitter #Updates #Social #Security

Today Twitter announced 3 key changes to make their platform safer from abusive accounts.

1. Stopping the creation of new abusive accounts:

We’re taking steps to identify people who have been permanently suspended and stop them from creating new accounts. This focuses more effectively on some of the most prevalent and damaging forms of behaviour, particularly accounts that are created only to abuse and harass others.

2. Introducing safer search results:

We’re also working on ‘safe search’ which removes Tweets that contain potentially sensitive content and Tweets from blocked and muted accounts from search results. While this type of content will be discoverable if you want to find it, it won’t clutter search results any longer. 

3. Collapsing potentially abusive or low-quality Tweets:

Our team has also been working on identifying and collapsing potentially abusive and low-quality replies so the most relevant conversations are brought forward. These Tweet replies will still be accessible to those who seek them out. You can expect to see this change rolling out in the coming weeks.

As usual, these changes will be rolled out over the coming weeks so it may take a little time until you see them. There are also suggestions that other changes could be on the way too. Watch this space.
