Twitter says it’s going to start pushing more abusive tweets out of sight - Recode
Twitter will start hiding inappropriate responses to tweets so they don’t appear in user conversations. Tweets containing words, phrases or images deemed inappropriate by the company will be hidden from conversation threads, and users will need to click a new “show less relevant replies” button in order to see them. Twitter will use machine learning technology (a.k.a. algorithms) to automatically hide certain responses. You can’t opt out of this feature, according to a company spokesperson.
