Twitter’s New Feature Will Help You Control Who Can Reply to Your Tweets

Have you ever received unwelcome replies to your tweets from people that don’t know you or who you don’t like? This is particularly pertinent to women who use Twitter but at the same time can be considered a valid complaint no matter who makes it because, after all, Twitter is a very open community and many people use it so you are bound to come across someone or the other that you don’t like at any given point in time all in all.

With all of that having been said and out of the way, a new feature that Twitter is testing out might change things completely. You might soon be given the option of controlling who can or can’t reply to your tweet. You can choose to only let those that are tagged reply or restrict it to your followers and there are probably more options that you can look into as well.

Now, this is big news for a few reasons. Firstly, Twitter has always been a very open community, and many would say that the whole point of the platform is to facilitate easy communication and open dialogue between people. However, some people might want to have a conversation with a select few people and this is the sort of thing that can be quite useful for you in a wide variety of ways.

It remains to be seen whether or not this feature will even be rolled out, but since it is being tested so widely chances are that Twitter will be rolling it out at some point or another. Big celebrities like Lil Nas X have already started using it to troll their fans so there is a good chance that this feature could take off and become immensely popular in a wide variety of ways.
