Twitter lets you avoid trolls by muting new users and strangers
When trolls barge into people’s notifications with offensive replies or user names, they might not keep coming back to Twitter. So today the company rolled out new tools to help you silence the riff-raff. There are now options to mute notifications from newly registered accounts, people you don’t follow, and people who don’t follow you. These can be configured in the Notifications -> Settings -> Advanced Filters section of Twitter.
These additions follow Twitter’s March rollout of ways to silence people who haven’t added a profile picture, or verified their email address or phone number. The change comes amid Twitter denying the Washington Post‘s report that it’s working on ways to let people report fake news.
