Twitter (TWTR - Free Report) continues to ramp up its security measures to enhance user safety and accessibility on its platform. Recently, the social media giant updated its reporting feature, which enables users to provide a detailed review of the tweet they choose to report.
The company has faced backlash for its inability to protect user privacy on its platform. Notably, prior to this development, reporting a tweet or an account only worked for those accounts that violated Twitter’s policies.
On reporting a post, users will get to specify whether a particular tweet is offensive or is spreading personal information. If a user selects the second option, they can mention if the tweet reveals their contact information, place of residence, financial information or ID numbers among others.
The new update will help Twitter to prioritize the reported tweets and accelerate the process of removing the ones containing personal information. Notably, Twitter’s new update follows the footstep of Facebook (FB - Free Report) , which announced its plan of rebuilding a privacy- focused platform on Mar 6.
