In a bid to cut harassment for many users, Twitter will soon give them four options to allow who can participate in their conversations or threads on its platform.

The first option will be ‘Global’ where anyone can post replies to your tweet.

In the second option called ‘Group’, you can limit replies to people you follow and mention (Group).

The third option called ‘Panel’ will be only for people included in the conversation, and no one at all ‘Statement’ as the fourth option, announced Twitter’s director of product management, Suzanne Xie, at the CES 2020 on Wednesday here.

It means Twitter users will not need to take your account private to avoid bullies.

According to The Verge, Xie said that Twitter is “in the process of doing research on the feature” and that “the mock ups are going to be part of an experiment we’re going to run” in the first quarter.

Hours after Android users reported glitches while logging into Twitter after it crashed on Wednesday, the micro blogging site rolled out an update on the Google Play Store.

Earlier in the day, the firm had acknowledged the issue and said it had started fixing it.

“We are investigating a problem with the latest version of our Android app that causes it to crash immediately once it is opened. If you use Twitter for Android, we suggest not updating it until we let you know it’s fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience!” the micro blogging site tweeted.
