Fil­ter tool to stop abu­sive mes­sages

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Twit­ter has launched a new fil­ter tool which can hide spam and abu­sive mes­sages that are sent to users via the plat­form’s di­rect mes­sages fea­ture.

The tool adds a new sec­tion to the Mes­sage Re­quests area, where mes­sages from Twit­ter users you do not fol­low ap­pear. Now, mes­sages in that sec­tion which Twit­ter de­tects ap­pear to con­tain ei­ther spam or abuse will be ini­tially hid­den and can be deleted with­out be­ing opened.
