Twitter Limiting Replies to Combat Verbal Abuse


In light of big artists like Lizzo, Ari Lennox, and other such artists that have left Twitter and social media, Twitter is addressing its 'bullying' and online abuse problem by implementing a new function to combat internet trolls.

Pop Crave announced that Twitter would be implementing this new function.

It will allow Twitter users to use different reply settings:

  • GLOBAL: for anybody to reply
  • GROUP: for people you follow and mention are allowed to reply
  • PANEL: for users that you specifically mention in the tweet
  • STATEMENT: disables all replies from anyone

How do you feel about this new function? Will it stop Twitter bullying, or is this just doing a lot?
