Twitter Updates: Filter & Limits, Topics in Spaces & more

Twitter updates

Twitter has announced few significant updates includinig the expansion of Twitter Official Partner Program with the addition of new partners, along with reply controls, and more.

The accessibility and availability of the Twitter features and updates is subjective to each rollout.

Filter & Limits

Filter & Limits are new tools under development in the beta concept phase, for users who would prefer keeping potentially harmful content at the bay from replies on their Tweets. When Twitter detects such replies they would prompt the user to use controls to filter or limit potentially harmful replies that derail from debates or disagreements. These controls would also be accessible on Twitter Settings.

Accounts that have a history of potentially harmful behavior would be barred from replying to Tweets from users who have ‘Limits’ turned on. Filters will restrict the visibility of an abusive reply to only the person who Tweets it, and not to the author of the original Tweet who has Filters turned on, along with any user who sees the Thread.
