The social media giant is reportedly testing out a new “Safety Mode” that will block the accounts engaged in behaviors leading to mental stress associated with tweet pile-ons. Based on the app’s system assessment, it is essentially an auto-block at scale.
When the Safety Mode is turned on, it will automatically recognize and block the accounts that are indulged in harmful activities like abusive language, sending unwanted and repetitive @mentions and replies, or scam Direct Messages. This will not only save you from any kind of negative impact but will also keep the platform free from scammers and bad influences.
So, as soon as you start getting a heap of mentions or replies on a controversial tweet, enable the Safety Mode. Twitter’s assessment system will then shield you from all the negative impacts. Furthermore, it will only take a day or two for the company to blow over such activities.
In case you didn’t figure out the negative comments or mentions on your tweets, the company’s system will do it for you. Once the harmful behaviors are detected, the app will notify you about the issue so that you can review and enable the settings if needed.
Currently, the Safety Mode is being tested out on a small group of people on Android, iOS, and Twitter.com. However, the company plans to expand its beta testing in the months coming ahead.
