You Can Now Limit Who Can Reply To You On Twitter

Twitter is saying ‘bye to the reply guys’, allowing users to control who can reply to their Tweets.

‘Reply guys’ have long been an issue on the social media app, where users (often anonymous) frequently comment on posts in an annoying, condescending or otherwise unsolicited manner.

Twitter first put these users on notice in May when it announced it was trialling a feature that would limit unwanted replies on posts.

And after successfully testing the new feature, Twitter has this week revealed the change will be rolled out across the platform.

All Twitter users can choose who can reply to their Tweets from three options:

  1. Everyone (the default setting)
  2. Only people you follow
  3. Only people you mention

“We’re super excited about the rollout of our new conversation settings. Twitter is where you go to see and talk about what’s happening,” said Twitter director of product Suzanne Xie said.

“But sometimes, unwanted replies make it hard to have meaningful conversations. The new conversation tools have shown that users feel more comfortable about Tweeting and more protected from spam and abuse.

“Differing views can still be shared with Retweets with Comments, which sometimes reach a larger audience than the original Tweet. We’re giving people more control over who replies to their content, whilst still being able to see various perspectives. We’ve already seen a surge in people sharing more of their thoughts which is fantastic news!”
