Twitter to Roll Out a Feature which Hides Replies in June to Provide more Control over Conversations

Twitter says that it is indeed “experimenting” with a new option which gives users the ability to conceal replies to their tweets…

Social microblog Twitter has announced it will start testing a new feature in June. The new tool will give its users the power to hide replies to tweets. 

Twitter Hidden Replies Test Lets People Moderate Conversations

Software engineer, Jane Manchun Wong, who has a strong history of spotting features tucked away in code, found the option back in March. It appeared at the time Twitter was in the midst of testing out a tool called “replies moderation.”

If the June test run mimics the one in March, it would allow users to tuck-away replies to their tweets. (Although it does conceal replies, it doesn’t delete them. Instead, those replies remain, visible by manual action.)

Senior product manager Michelle Yasmeen explains:

“We already see people trying keep their conversations healthy by using block, mute, and report, but these tools don’t always address the issue. Block and mute only change the experience of the blocker, and report only works for the content that violates our policies.”
