Twit­ter to fil­ter tweets and no­ti­fi­ca­tions

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - MONEY -

SAN FRAN­CISCO >> Twit­ter has an­nounced two new set­tings that will al­low users to con­trol what they see in their feeds and what no­ti­fi­ca­tions they re­ceive.

Twit­ter says it has mod­i­fied its no­ti­fi­ca­tion set­tings to in­clude the abil­ity for users to see only no­ti­fi­ca­tions from peo­ple they fol­low. It’s also in­tro­duc­ing what it calls a “qual­ity fil­ter” that it says can im­prove the qual­ity of tweets users see and fil­ter out du­pli­cate tweets or con­tent that ap­pears to be au­to­mated.

The an­nounce­ment comes a month af­ter “Sat­ur­day Night Live” and “Ghost­busters” star Les­lie Jones pub­licly called on Twit­ter to do more to curb ha­rass­ment on the plat­form.
