- This can be used to block offensive tweets from your timeline

- Here’s everything you can mute from your Twitter notifications now:

  • Words.
  • Phrases.
  • Usernames.
  • Emojis.
  • Hashtags.

- Twitter has also updated its hateful conduct policy this is to prevent targeting of users based on things such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender. They have made reporting this easier and the way they handle the reports will be better.

- Hateful or offensive tweets cannot be taken off Twitter but it is now easier to hide them
