Twitter Tests 'Safety Mode' to Automatically Block Harassment. The new feature will help crack down on abuse and trolling, which have become huge issues for the platform.

If Twitter believes that another user has sent you an abusive message, the feature can temporarily prohibit them from following your account, seeing your tweets, or sending you direct messages.

Twitter will test the function among a small group of English-language users. 

The company has designed the new mode as a bit of an emergency button to help users escape "dogpiling" on Twitter and the wave of insults that can potentially ensue.

“Safety Mode is a feature that temporarily blocks accounts for seven days for using potentially harmful language—such as insults or hateful remarks—or sending repetitive and uninvited replies or mentions,” the company explained.

Like other social media platforms, Twitter relies on a combination of automated and human moderation.

To determine which tweets to block, Twitter is going to rely on computer algorithms to examine the incoming tweet’s content and who it’s sent from. 

Those whose Tweets are deemed abusive or unwanted by our technology will be automatically prohibited from following your account, seeing your Tweets, or sending you Direct Messages," Twitter warned.

Meanwhile, tweets sent from people you follow or frequently interact with will not be autoblocked.

Users will also be able to check which accounts Safety Mode is temporarily blocking. If the function made a mistake, the user can remove the block.

Twitter developed the feature in the hopes it promotes healthy conversation over the platform.
