Twitter’s Message To Trolls And ‘Reply Guys’: Don’t @ Me

Twitter is changing the way users interact with one another, unveiling a new feature to limit the number of people that can reply to tweets.

As part of a new product experiment, Twitter users will be able to choose who can reply to their posts with three options; everyone, only people you follow and only people you mention.

It serves as a way to limit unwanted replies on posts – something Twitter attributes to ‘reply guys’.

The new feature currently being trialled among a limited number of users, with plans to expand the roll out.

Upon making the announcement, Twitter had some fun with the new feature on its official account.

Twitter has added a number of features in recent months to help improve conversations on the platform, including the ability to hide replies and the enablement of threaded conversations.

“Being able to participate and understand what’s happening is key for useful public conversation,” Twitter said on its latest update.

“So, we’re exploring how we can improve these settings to give people more opportunities to weigh in while still giving people control over the conversations they start.”
