Twitter is introducing new features that users can test. One is the ability to apply one-time alerts to photos and videos posted on Twitter. According to Twitter’s Safety account, the app is testing “an option for some of you to add a one-time alert to photos and videos you post to help those who might want a warning.”
Before this test began, users had to claim that all their tweets were sensitive. They will now be able to mark only some of the tweets as sensitive to a specific audience.
When adding an image, for example, click on the three dots, then on the small flag in the lower right corner and check the box that best suits your content: “Nudity”, “Violence” or just “Sensitive”.
The Verge notes:
If you don’t tag content when you post sensitive material, Twitter will – as it has already done – rely on user reports to decide whether or not your content should have a warning. In addition to its experiment with content warning, Twitter has announced it is testing a way for people to deal with the reporting process first. Instead of asking the user which tweet rules he is violating, he will give the user the opportunity to describe exactly what happened and based on that answer he will determine the specific violation.
Not only that, but today the company as well announced new Explore tab for “some of you” in “certain countries” who use Twitter in English on Android and iOS.
With this redesigned card, the Research section will consist of a “For You” tab and a “Trending” tab. Users can still reply, retweet, like or share information. Although the company is not very clear, it is likely that this new section of Explore will work just like TikTok, so you can only switch between the new content.
It is unclear when these features will be available to all users. Have you been able to test any of them before? Let us know in the comments section below.
