According to reports by Bloomberg, Twitter is currently working on an array of new features that are dedicated to ensuring the safety of users and eventually leading towards more usage of the app.
In an effort to give users greater control over their follower lists and who can see their posts and likes, along with making people more comfortable interacting and sharing on the social network, Twitter is now rumored to introduce several new changes to the app.
What may officially be called “Social Privacy”, the features may allow the ability to edit follower lists, and a tool to archive old tweets so that they’re no longer visible to others after a specific amount of time designated by the user. Hiding past tweets could be a popular feature with people who don’t want their posts to stay online forever.
The potential tools that may be introduced as part of the border “Social Privacy” include archived tweets where the company is considering a range of time options, including hiding posts after 30, 60, and 90 days, or hiding tweets after a full year.
Furthermore, users may also be able to remove followers, and will soon be able to set who can see which tweets they have liked. Users will also be given the option to remove themselves from a public conversation on Twitter, among other changes.
