General News Twitter testing new filter for spam and abuse in the Direct Message inbox: Report

Twitter is reportedly working on a new feature to filter spam and abusive messages from Direct Message (DM) inbox. “Unwanted messages aren’t fun. So we’re testing a filter in your DM requests to keep those out of sight, out of mind,” Twitter Support reported. Currently, the microblogging platform lets users set their DM inbox open to receive messages from anyone.

“This new experiment will test a filter that will move unwanted messages, including those with offensive content or spam, to a separate tab,” reports TechCrunch. Besides, the company is also testing a feature that will allow users to follow or snooze specific topics. Currently, the app lets Twitter users follow people or specific pages. The topics could be anything including sports teams, celebrities, and TV shows. If reports are to be believed, these topics will be curated by Twitter.
