New Delhi, October 14
Twitter is working on a new feature that will allow users to control who can mention them in their tweets so that no one can tag or mention your Twitter with their posts unless you want them to.
The feature, when available, will fundamentally change the way people name and tag others with their posts on the platform.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong first saw the test version of the feature and said, “Twitter is working to let you control who can mention you on Twitter”.
Twitter privacy designer Dominic Camozzi confirmed the feature is in the works, but later deleted the tweet.
This feature allows you to control who can name you, such as people you follow, everyone, or no one at all.
The feature prevents Twitter users from being bullied or harassed.
In August, the company launched Twitter Circle that allows people to choose who can see and use their content per tweet. This makes it easier to have more intimate conversations and build closer connections with select followers.
Before posting to Twitter, you will now see an option to share your Tweet with your circle or with your entire follower list. Circles can contain up to 150 people and you can change who is in and who is not at any time.
“Don’t worry, no one will be notified of any changes you make to your circle,” Twitter said.
