You can now beat the trolling community…

Social media giant Twitter is looking to give its users more control over the content they consume on the app.

With a new expansion of its keyword blocking and mute tools, they are allowing you to filter the kind of words you do not want to see. This is a step towards building a safer and happier online community.

As Twitter says in an official statement:

“We’re working on some updates so keywords you’ve muted and accounts you’ve muted/blocked stay out of a few more places. First up, Events. Now across Android, iOS, and web, Events from accounts you’ve blocked or muted won’t appear in your Explore tab, “What’s happening” sidebar and emails, or Event-based notifications.”

This will provide users with additional assurance, and control, with more comprehensive blocking that will enable them to avoid topics and/or people that they don’t want to see, which will help improve the broader user experience.

Twitter’s limited blocking tools have long been an issue, with users reporting frustration that topics they don’t want to see continue to show up, even after they’ve blocked virtually every permutation of the related term/s.
