Twitter will let users be much more specific when reporting tweets with personal information

Twitter adds new options to its reporting process for tweets that share personal information, and adds much more specific fields that users can highlight when sending reports.

Now, when a tweet containing private data is reported. Information, users will be taken to an additional menu that will allow them to specify if the tweet contains contact information, the address of their house or physical location, financial information or images or identification numbers. The new feature should be launched today on the web and mobile versions of Twitter.

While it is certainly useful that Twitter allows users to be more specific by highlighting tweets problematic, the new system – much like a similar update last October that offered more granular options to report bots or fake accounts – it's still not clear what will happen (if anything happens) at the end of Twitter stuff when it receives The report. Will tweets with more specific flags be more likely to be eliminated or eliminated? Twitter has not said it, although the company now indicates on the site when the tweets were removed due to violations of the site rules.

Even so, despite the fact that Twitter continues to struggle to maintain a balance between freedom of expression and harassment, it is good that the company continues to implement new tools that will help address the problems that still affect the platform .
