Twitter is a Petri dish of trolls who feed on sending offensive messages, replies or tweets to other users. That's why Twitter has introduced some new tools in its app and browser. One helps you fade outto your tweets, and the other filters out rude direct messages. With these new tools, you can filter out the most aggressive comments.
The new Filter Tool scans your incoming messages for offensive or inappropriate responses and hides them in a folder. You can show them at any time feel mentally strengthened.
The hide tweeting feature is now available, and the direct message filter is still being provisioned to users, so you may not yet be able to see it. Learn how to access the latest troll blocking tools.
