Twitter announces changes to abuse-reporting system

Microblogging company Twitter yesterday announced it was simplifying the way tweeters report abuse on its platform, Reuters reported.

The enhancements will allow users to report observed harassment and not just that which they receive personally. The measures will also require less information from those who report incidents.

"We are nowhere near being done making changes in this area," said Shreyas Doshi, director, Product Management and User Safety, in a message posted on Twitter's website.

"In the coming months, you can expect to see additional user controls, further improvements to reporting and new enforcement procedures for abusive accounts."

Also as part of the changes, which are to be deployed over the coming weeks, users will be able to view a list of accounts they have blocked. Twitter also pledged speedier response times to reports of abuse.
