Twitter had been testing a new Safety Mode feature and is making it available to more users after collecting sufficient feedback through the beta test. The feature has been designed using automated system detection and can be used for autoblocking potentially problematic accounts.
Remember when we began testing a new feature called Safety Mode? After months of feedback from beta users, we’re excited to expand this to some of you in several new English-speaking markets to gain more feedback and insights. https://t.co/8TM7S5Zfuj pic.twitter.com/AqVOUwyNQv— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) February 15, 2022
Safety Mode can be accessed from the Privacy and Safety settings in the app. The autoblocking functionality will be activated for 7 days to target accounts that have been engaging in unwanted interaction with you, such as sending repetitive replies or @mentions your way.
By turning on Safety Mode, you can save yourself from potential negative impacts from other accounts on the platform.
Twitter has announced that it is bringing the feature to ‘several new English-speaking markets.’
