Twitter rolls out a new feature! The new feature aims to make conversations more ‘meaningful, safe’.
Twitter recently announced a new feature to make conversations on the micro-blogging website more “meaningful” and “safe”.
The new feature enables users more control over who could reply to their tweets.
This change will not only limit unnecessary communication but also prevent harassment.
Making the announcement via a tweet, the micro-blogging site said, “A conversation on Twitter can get noisy and hard to follow. For a more meaningful convo experience, we’re testing something new. As you compose a new Tweet, you can open replies to everyone, people you follow, or just people you @ mention.”
