It was a long time coming but it's still good news that Twitter's finally rolling out a supposed more effective way to protect its users.
Twitter has announced on its blog last week a few welcome changes to how users can report harassment on their site. So it finally got easier to report abuse even when you're a third-party witness and even when you're using a smartphone.
The new reporting tool has apparently been streamlined and redesigned for use in mobile phones, according to a review from Bradley Associates News Blog Information. So while it was a pain to file a complaint before because of the lengthy questionnaire, the report form now should be a breeze to complete. Users can even flag tweets even when it's not directed at them.
Bradley Associates News Blog Information is a news source for anyone interested in cutting-edge science and technology, a science community blog if you like, stock market news, community and developing stories. Readers can then comment on articles posted and even comment on the comments. Spam is not tolerated and attempts to use commenting as a form of text advertising is in vain as links are nofollow and spurious usernames are edited.
