Twitter Rolls Out ‘Quality Filter’ to Block Abuse and Automated Content
Twitter has announced a new “Quality Filter” feature that enables users to filter notifications so that they only see “quality tweets” and mentions from people they follow.
The feature initially rolled out as a test and was created partly as a means to combat users’ exposure to abusive trolls, but Twitter says the filter is now available to everyone.
“Last year we began testing a quality filter setting and we’re now rolling out a feature for everyone. When turned on, the filter can improve the quality of Tweets you see by using a variety of signals, such as account origin and behavior,” Twitter said in a blog post.
