Twitter has already gone a long way to helping users battle cyber-bullying and harassment. Now, the company is continuing this trend with a much-needed update.
Making a report for each offending tweet can be a tedious process, but users now have the ability to file multiple dodgy tweets in one report.
“This update makes it easier for you to provide us with more information about the extent of abuse and reduces the time it takes to do so. That added context often helps us investigate issues and get them resolved faster,” the company said in a blog post.
Twitter said the update is slowly rolling out to Android, iOS and the website first, but expected all global users to get the feature “in the coming weeks”.
The company also revealed that it had more safety-focused features to announce “soon”.
The new feature joins several tools and updated policies that Twitter announced late last year.
Back then, the company introduced the ability for users to share blocklists, locked down offending accounts for a specified timeframe and prompted users to delete dodgy tweets.
Twitter also launched a safety centre in July last year, being a hub for people to learn more about staying safe online.
