Twitter users have reshaped the way people voice their opinions and take a stand on issues important to them. However, the social media platform has also been a place for hate-mongering and numerous anti-social trolling behaviour.
With a new update, which is presently in the testing phase, Twitter users will have greater control over who can actually reply to you.
If and when this feature comes through (Twitter is initially rolling out this feature only for few across the globe), users will be able to choose from ‘allow replies from everyone’, ‘people you follow’, or ‘only people you @ mention’. As per Twitter’s reveal in January, this feature would be coming to the platform sometime this year.
