Twitter this week announced specific measures to tackle repeated abuse, bullying and harassment on the social network, offering similar functions to those already available on Instagram and mirroring efforts made by Facebook. Twitter is first of all extending its “Mute” function to notifications, making it possible to block specific keywords, phrases and even entire conversations. Twitter also promises to make it easier for users to report any behavior targeting users on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or disease.
