You may soon be able to hide your old tweets – Times of India
NEW DELHI: Twitter recently introduced a new Safety Mode feature enabling users to have more control over their conversations. Now, the social networking giant is working on new features which will offer more privacy options to the users. According to a report by Bloomberg, Twitter is planning to introduce a new feature to archive old tweets. This feature will hide old tweets so that they are not visible to other users after a given period of time. Along with hiding the tweets, users will also get an option to limit who can see which tweets you have liked. Twitter will also be allowing people to remove themselves from a conversation on the platform and also let people remove followers without directly blocking them.
The report describes the new features as a suite of ‘social privacy’ and they are designed at offering a better, comfortable and engaging experience to users. The company has not yet revealed a timeline as of when these changes will be made public. The report suggests that the hiding tweet feature is still in the ‘concept phase’.
However, Twitter will reportedly allow people to remove themselves from conversations by the end of the year and from next month users will also be able to remove followers.
In a statement given to The Verge, Twitter confirmed these changes. The company said, “At Twitter, privacy is more than what we do with your data, it’s also about how we help you feel safe and in control of how you show up on Twitter. We understand that there’s no one size fits all approach to privacy, so we’re excited to roll out more features and tools to empower people on Twitter to customize their experience. Our focus on social privacy is inspired by feedback we received through a global research study we conducted to better understand people’s perceptions of and needs for privacy around the globe. We’ll begin testing some of these features as soon as next week.”
