Today Twitter announced new safety features on their blog. Just like third-party Twitter clients in iOS and Android, you will be able to filter certain keywords. You will also be allowed to control who gets to follow you so if an account has the default egg profile picture you can choose not to see this account.
We’re continuing to improve the transparency and openness of our reporting process. You’ll start to hear more from us about accounts or Tweets that you’ve reported to our support teams – both when you report harassment directed at you or another account. You will be notified when we’ve received your report and informed if we take further action. This will all be visible in your notifications tab on our app.
Twitter has been doing a lot trying to clean up this mess it has let happen for too long. And Twitter has been doing a great job for sure, my timeline has better rich tweets that I have enjoyed reading.
The updates will be rolling out to their app in the coming weeks/months
