3 Major Safety Updates on Twitter – February 2017

3 Major Safety Updates on Twitter – February 2017

Ed Ho, VP Engineering @Twitter announced a major update on safety features in Twitter.

  1. This update intent to stop the creation of new abusive type twitter accounts. People who create accounts in Twitter for only harassing and abusing other users will be closely monitored and if necessary, their accounts will get suspended permanently. Going further, steps are being taken to stop them from creating new profiles in twitter.
  2. Twitter is going to make their internal search results safer by removing tweets that contain potentially sensitive content and tweets from blocked or muted accounts from their search results.
  3. In the coming weeks we can expect another brilliant change in the tweet stream. Twitter is trying to seek out the most relevant conversations in the tweet replies and to showcase those along with tweets. Abusive low quality replies may fall behind these replies, which will make the user more comfortable in the platform.

Ed ho announced this pro-Twitterati update last week. ”In the days and weeks ahead, we will continue to roll out product changes – some changes will be visible and some less so – and will update you on progress every step of the way. With every change, we’ll learn, iterate, and continue to move at this speed until we’ve made a significant impact that people can feel”, he said in his blog post.
