Twitter developing new feature to hide replies to your tweets

1/8 Thanks to Jane and @MattNAvarra for starting the conversation about the this feature we are developing! We wanted to provide a little more context on it.

2/8 We often hear from heavy Tweeters that they want to be able to protect their conversations...

3/8 People who start interesting conversations on Twitter are really important to us, and we want to empower them to make the conversations they start as healthy as possible by giving them some control.

4/8 We think of conversations as an ecosystem of different groups: authors, repliers, the audience and the platform. We try to balance the experience across all four groups, and we are continuously exploring ways to shift the balance without overcorrecting.

5/8 We already see people trying keep their conversations healthy by using block, mute, and report, but these tools donít always address the issue. Block and mute only change the experience of the blocker, and report only works for the content that violates our policies.

6/8 With this feature, the person who started a conversation could choose to hide replies to their tweets. The hidden replies would be viewable by others through a menu option. It will look a little something like this:

7/8 We think the transparency of the hidden replies would allow the community to notice and call out situations where people use the feature to hide content they disagree with. We think this can balance the product experience between the original Tweeter and the audience.

8/8 In the coming months, we plan to start testing this publicly so stay tuned for more and keep telling us what you think!
