Huge Milestone for all Twitters

Now, reviewing the current top Twitter trends, Twitter will test a “reply limiting” feature to beat back trolls. In an effort to block trolls and harassers, Twitter is attempting to stop tweet replies from certain accounts. Even if your account is public, only a selected audience will be able to reply. This is in order to have, as Twitter says, more “conversational health”. This eliminates the issue of having to manually hide each inappropriate reply. We will surely be expecting this change with excitement! As a brand, you should definitely have a plan settled for when someone writes a negative replay to your twit. Some brands choose to answer, some others choose to hide the reply, with this update you might want to re-think your strategy. 

Here’s to a year with less laziness and cooler graphic content!
