Twitter is seeking new tools that would enable users to gain greater control over the tone and the quality of their tweets’ responses. Filter and limits would intelligently conceal inappropriate or damaging responses, as revealed by Twitter designer Paula Barcante, or prohibit repeat criminals from answering.

Based on Barcante’s idea photos published, Twitter will see whether a damaging response has been received and ask you to switch on Filter or Limit. “If you have Filter on, potentially harmful replies to your Tweet wouldn’t be shown to you or anyone else,” says Barcante. Accounts with an offensive or “repetitive, uninvited tweets” history might be avoided by allowing Limit to respond.

The notion of Twitter is quite up-to-date regarding whether filter or limit has been activated. In the case of filtered tweets, the respondent is still shown, with the wording appended saying: “It’s visible to you.” Twitter would provide a warning for account(s) with limits enabled to explain “Response limit is limited” to find out more.

Since this procedure is automated – completely imaginary – it is not always correct. Barcante says that Twitter considers also to allow users to check the tweets caught in either of its net functions, should the user disagree with the automatic choice of Twitter and wish to fix it.

Twitter’s capabilities definitely sound more helpful than, example, fleets with Filter and Limit Late (RIP). It is simple to assume that allowing such settings can significantly avoid the racial abuse of very visible people. Twitter has also looked at various methods to safeguard the experience of users such as offering the option to conceal outdated tweets or to decide who is going to view a tweet before sending it. However, no information was received with respect to the proper timeline.
