Twitter is ‘exploring’ new range of privacy-related features

Twitter users might receive an exciting new range of privacy-related features next year, according to a post from the company’s Vice President of Research and Design, Dantley Davis.

Davis on Tuesday tweeted a list of features he’s “looking forward in 2020”, including the option to stop tweets from being retweeted.

Additionally, users will also be able to remove themselves from a conversation and require permission before someone mentions them on the platform.

“I believe giving more control to users will help create a healthier Twitter and reduce abuse. Additionally, these features need to be easy to access and use,” Davis continued.

Unfortunately, the new features are not official and may never reach the platform at all according to The Verge. Twitter reportedly told the publication that it’s simply “exploring” several ideas.

The news comes after the company last week announced that it will ban all political advertising on its platform in an effort to reduce the unfair advantage paid advertising can have on political campaigns.
