Twitter Just Made It Easier to Block Haters

Dec 03, 2014

You can now block Twitter trolls more easily than ever.

The social network has created a set of tools that allow users to flag inappropriate users and content amidst the 500 million Tweets sent each day in fewer steps. Blocking a user has always required filling out a report that details the alleged harassment, but less information is now required in the report.

Twitter released a short video that shows off its mobile-friendly new options.

On the back-end, Twitter has implemented a tool that allows for a more streamlined review of flagged tweets and users.
