Twitters Lets People Hide 'Inappropriate' Replies To Their Tweets

However, other users can tap on the grey icon to see the responses you’ve hidden.

A new feature that lets you hide replies to your tweets got some teases months ago, and now Twitter announces that it’s done the testing phase for the upcoming feature. The new option comes as a new method for users to curate their conversation, rather than make an inappropriate disappear forever. However, other users can tap on the grey icon to see the responses you’ve hidden. People can start using the feature on Twitter's main apps and versions, including Twitter Lite and desktop.

During the test process, the social media noticed that if users found an “irrelevant, off-topic or annoying” tweet responding to their post, most of them would use the feature to make such a tweet out of attention. The company first started the test in Canada and found that nearly thirty percent of people whose replies had been hidden felt uncertain about a similar action next time. Twitter, in the meantime, thought its tool still needs some tweaking. For example, some users concerned about retaliation after using the feature because there’s an icon showing what they’ve done with these responses.

Twitter likely wants to level up its policy over the platform since many critics are concentrating on its ineffectiveness when it comes to this problem. Prior to the launch of this feature, the social media took down over 50 percent of inappropriate tweets even when users didn’t flag it abusive. However, it must be a long way to go for the company to keep the cyberspace as clean as possible.
