Twitter: Users can report multiple offensive tweets

Twitter’s former CEO, Dick Costolo, a year ago made it clear to a great extent that Twitter is not great at dealing with the user on user abuse and offensive comments attacks. Many critics who are pretty vocal have greatly reflected that stance on Twitter’s attitude particularly towards mediation in user interactions to prevent disgusting & personal offensive-comments attacks. For quite some time, the site has a dependency on users who felt a great deal that somebody had crossed the line to individually raise and spread each of their abusive-cum-offensive tweets is to be checked out by Safety Team of Twitter. Through an update which is rolling out now for iOS, Android and the desktop version of Twitter are helpful in making change by allowing users to select a number of tweets in a single report. In various significant cases, this can lead to an investigation into the responsible account to find it out if disciplinary action may be needed.

Twitter’s official announcement shows that Twitter is the view that this update will facilitate Twitter’s Safety Team and for all users affected by the abuse in many ways. Initially, investigating process will take less time for the starter and Safety members will no longer have to deal vigorously with user’s profile for offensive and abusive Tweets, the user will also not need to send multiple reports that impede the process of different activities of staff members at the same complaint. Reporting multiple Tweets at once will, resultantly, allow the Safety Team to review them in context and to determine it more accurately what happened, who is to blame and on whose shoulder lays the responsibility for which action should be carried out.

Twitter’s official announcement pinpointed that more safety and security regulation through features will be coming in updates down the line with an unanticipated time frame. Users are advised to keep an eye on Twitter’s official safety center to check out current policies and regulatory tools and allow users to get themselves more clear about safety and security. It is certain that no other OSes or versions of the app were announced, as per multiple Tweet reporting updates rolled out. Nevertheless, it is to be assumed that the update should be hitting all users on all platforms. It can be conceived that ‘Abusive-Tweets’ making one offensive is not allowed!. You can report it.
