Twitter users can hide replies to their tweets
Twitter is letting all users hide unwanted replies to their tweets as part of a broader effort to make the platform less toxic, Strategy2050.kz has learnt from CNN Business.
“Currently, repliers can shift the topic or tone of a discussion and derail what you and your audience want to talk about. We learned that the feature is a useful new way to manage your conversations”, Twitter wrote in a blog post.
According to the information, by tapping the gray icon that appears on their post and selecting “hide reply” users can hide replies to their tweets. Those replies will be moved to a different page, where they can still be viewed by other users. To see the hidden replies, users can select the “hidden reply” icon on the tweet.
Twitter will also ask if the owner of the account would like to block the person whose reply they hid.
Starting today, you can now hide replies to your Tweets. Out of sight, out of mind. pic.twitter.com/0Cfe4NMVPj— Twitter (@Twitter) 21 ноября 2019 г.
