Twitter has been taking some important actions to deal with trolls and social media abuse. There are number of new privacy measures and security options have been introduced by Twitter such as safer search results, temporary restrictions of accounts, limiting visibility of tweets and more. All these options have been very small, but it is yet to see how the users are going to experience this kind of measures to solve the online abuse. Twitter has been introducing new tools that would take care of various concerns related to trolls and make this social media platform more pleasing for its users. One of the new measure blocks profiles from others view along with warning which says that the content used from Twitter account can be offensive. The users will be able to click the option ‘Yes, view profile’ to move on and there will be no moment to pause. This will give the Twitter users a simple chance without getting exposed to offensive content.
According to report, the users will not get any notifications when their Twitter accounts are being flagged and they will also not see any guidelines related to their account being blocked. Even though this option is under test mode the sensitive content will be flagged as per their present guidelines and the user and the explanations will be provided to the users when their tool gets enacted. This option is under the first stage of testing phase and there will be few changes when a completed tool comes into use for the Twitter account holders. It is considered to give a big problem for most of the brands who use Twitter to promote their business in case their account gets blocked as per the guidelines. The businesses would like to reach to people in large members on the social media platform and the tool like these may affect them. Twitter will also be able to provide complete information about their tool once they are ready with it after their test proves be good and use it on their social platform.
At present, all their tools have been limited and may be replaced if they fail to perform in the right way. This is really good news for most of the Twitter users as they are working hard to handle the online trolls and abuse. Twitter has been facing few criticizism recently for their inability to act against the online abusers on their platform due to lack of any new innovation. There are many apps that have been introduced that have been used by many people all over the online platform and with the behavior of users being changed, the trolling has also been increased which must be handled in the right way. Twitter has worked hard to introduce anti-abuse measures that will be able to change Twitter lists in few hours. The Twitter users will easily get benefitted with all these important steps taken by this social channel.
