Twitter Prepares New Feature To Hide Old Tweets

Technology-Portfolio.Net - Twitter is planning to prepare a new feature to give users more privacy options. This option offers to hide old tweets so that they are not visible to other users after a certain amount of time.

Twitter also includes options that allow users to limit who can see the tweets the user likes, remove themselves from conversations, and let users delete followers without blocking them outright.

The new feature is part of a series of social privacy changes that aim to make users more comfortable engaging on Twitter.

Internal research on Twitter seems to find that many users don't even know whether their account is public or private.

There is no timeline for when these features will be released as they are still in the concept phase.

However, Twitter is reportedly planning to start letting users remove themselves from conversations on Twitter by the end of the year and remove followers without blocking them this month.

"Our focus on social privacy was inspired by the feedback we received through global research studies conducted to better understand user perceptions and needs for privacy around the world. We will begin testing some of these features as soon as next week," Twitter said. >
Over the past year, Twitter has been testing several features, including monetization that started rolling out last week and subscription-based Super Follows that launched in the United States.
