Twitter over the next few months will roll out changes designed to increase the safety of users, including the following: Its algorithms will help identify accounts as they engage in abusive behavior, so the burden no longer will be on victims to report it; users will be able to restrict their tweets to followers for a set amount of time; new filtering options will give users more control over what they see from certain types of accounts; and new mute functionality will let users mute tweets from within their home timelines.
