Twitter is announcing that users of its social network can cut down the number of notifications they receive for posts, along with a "quality filter" that is supposed to reduce the number of duplicate posts.

In a blog post, Twitter says that people who tap or click on the Notifications tab can now limit them just to people they follow. This is for both mobile and web users. The second new option is designed to offer a better Twitter feed experience:

When turned on, the filter can improve the quality of Tweets you see by using a variety of signals, such as account origin and behavior. Turning it on filters lower-quality content, like duplicate Tweets or content that appears to be automated, from your notifications and other parts of your Twitter experience. It does not filter content from people you follow or accounts you've recently interacted with – and depending on your preferences, you can turn it on or off in your notifications settings.
