Stopping the creation of new abusive accounts:
Twitter is taking a great steps towards identifying people who have been permanently suspended and stop them from creating a new twitter account. This focuses more effectively on some of the most prevalent and damaging forms of behavior, particularly accounts that are created only to abuse and harass others.
Presenting safer search results:
The company is working on ‘safe search’ which discard Tweets that contain We’re also working on ‘safe search’ which removes Tweets that contain possibly sensitive tricky 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 disarray search results any longer.
Destruct 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.
In addition, Twitter is also giving users the option to filter the notifications they get when someone mentions them in a comment. For example, people will be able to filter out accounts without a profile photo, or unverified email ,addresses or phone numbers. This can be helpful in screening out accounts that have been set up solely for the purpose of harassment or trolling.
