Twitter is rolling out a new filter for Direct Messages (DM) that will help curb abusive and spammy tweets and hide unwanted messages in your account, the company announced on Tuesday.
The micro-blogging platform tested the feature for over a month, before announcing it for all the users across Twitter’s iOS, Android and Web apps.
“We tested, and turns out filters help you cut through the noise to find gems. Who knew. So we’re rolling out this filter to everyone on iOS, Android, and web!” said Twitter Support.
Messages that potentially contain abusive and offensive content will be filtered before they reach your DM inbox.
You will also be able to hide replies soon in the conversation thread on Twitter that are offensive, hateful or racist in nature.
The micro-blogging platform is testing a feature called “Hide Replies”, beginning with users in Canada which will be rolled out globally.
It is not the equivalent of a delete button but hides replies behind an icon.
“We’re testing a feature to hide replies from conversations. This experience will be available for everyone around the world, but at this time, only people in Canada can hide replies to their tweets,” Twitter Support posted. (IANS)

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:
Every child responds differently to disturbing events: What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices | Photo by Solen Feyissa on Unsplash
"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices. With more and more devices, more and more chargers are sold that are not interchangeable or not necessary. We are putting an end to that," the report quoted EU commissioner Thierry Breton as saying.
The Commission also wants to unbundle the sale of chargers from the sale of electronic devices, which it says will improve the consumers' convenience. "With our proposal, European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste." In addition, the Commission will require manufacturers to provide relevant information about charging performance. (IANS/MBI)
