Twitter has announced that they have now made it easier for you to report abusive tweets and harassment over their social network.
The company has streamlined their reporting service to make it easier to use, which may encourage more people who are victims of online abuse to report it.
Everything that happens in the world, happens on Twitter – to the tune of more than 500 million Tweets every day. That can sometimes include content that violates our rules around harassment and abuse and we want to make it easier to report such content. So, we’re improving the reporting process to make it much more mobile-friendly, require less initial information, and, overall, make it simpler to flag Tweets and accounts for review. These enhancements similarly improve the reporting process for those who observe abuse but aren’t receiving it directly. And to enable faster response times, we’ve made the first of several behind-the-scenes improvements to the tools and processes that help us review reported Tweets and accounts.
Twitter have said that these new features will be rolled out to everyone in the ‘coming weeks’, and the features are now available for a small group of users.
