Twitter now allows you to report harassment with multiple tweets at a time

Twitter is adding another improvement for people who want to report harassing messages on their social network. The company is rolling out a feature that will allow users to send multiple tweets in one report, rather than just sending them one at a time.

In a blog post, Twitter stated:

This update makes it easier for you to provide us with more information about the extent of abuse and reduces the time it takes to do so. That added context often helps us investigate issues and get them resolved faster.

This new update is currently rolling out on iOS, Android and the web versions of Twitter and will be available for all users "in the coming weeks". Twitter added that it will launch even more safety improvements and features soon.

  • Push notifications are still a no go in my Lumia. Is there a fix on the way?
  • Check your Twitter app settings. Sometimes it just doesn't enable push notifications by default. Posted from my laptop
  • No feature missing again. Really disappointing! They should revert to the old win8.1 version!
  • Is blocking too hard to do?
  • That solves the problem for the person who blocks them, not future people that get harassed.
  • I figured that would just be considered spam and this was more about people getting butt hurt because they are getting made fun of on twitter.
  • Getting made fun of is not harassment. But, getting racist, sexist, and otherwise bigoted tweets are daily occurrences for some people, and threats of rape, violence, or murder are routine forms of harassment on twitter, especially for outspoken women. Twitter is notoriously bad at responding to these sorts of things and really needs to step it up. This change is a small step in the right direction.
  • I don't want to sound like I'm standing up for people making those threats but its a free world. You can say what you want. You can also block and tune out what/who you want. This is a bad path to go down IMO...
  • Free speech! Unless I don't like what you're saying. I suppose there are pretty obvious lines of harassment, but then there is also a large gray area of butthurtness. My guess is (per South Park) people are so fragile these days that making a comment about their bad hair would likely send them into a downward spiral of drug addiction and whoring themselves out in Las Vegas. It's this type of "harassment" that is likely to get the most attention.
  • Twitter is a non-government owned platform. They don't have to apply the same rules of free speech. Only the government can't restrict your free speech. Twitter has a EULA, for better or worse. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • There is a limit... For instance defamation without prove, threatening people with raping or killing them (without them attacking you)... That is not allowed in normal life... Why should it make a difference if you speak to me in real life or with the help of technology? It is very hard to catch those people but it should be part of communication culture to not do that. The problem is that the feature should not be used to get rid of unpleasant opinions. A opinion is something different and should be allowed how bad it is anyway.
  • True, but I think this is just going to lead the way towards shutting down peoples opinions.  Already is happening on College Campuses.  Somebody puts Trump in sidewalk chalk and little kiddies are running for the exit like somebody pulled a gun in the middle of campus.  It's sad.  Freedoms are going down the crapper because everybody has been babied and can't handle life.
  • This isn't about different opinions. People having a civil discussion about two different viewpoints isn't harassment. But if some starts sending you replies about attacking you or harming you because of a retweet, that is harassment and Twitter has every right to ban that user. Personal attacks are not equal to simpt voicing a differing opinion.
  • Some college campuses will disagree with you now-a-days.  Spelling Trump in sidewalk chalk is now harassment to some, which is incredibly stupid, but that's the world we live in now.
  • So why are you publishing this article here?
  • Because we want to hear your generic responce.
  • This is hilarious. Now p*ssies have more of a voice than ever! "Oh this person is bothering me, and this person said this, and this other person is making me upset, and oh also I have no friends because no one likes me!!!" Thanks twatter....
  • No update for this feature and the last feature for the new Twitter app than. Well I couldnt care less.. since they removed the People Hub integration I didnt even use Twitter once 
  • I'm not sure if it's an app or a system issue. afaik only Silverlight apps are able to integrate into the People hub. But deep links are broken in the Twitter app as well. I use UnfollowSpy to track my followers, and it has a shortcut to open Twitter app on the user profile I pick. But if I have the Twitter UWP app installed the deep link always takes me to the timeline, no matter what. The only exception here is the share feature. I'm using the official app a lot more now (as Tweetium doesn't work properly in the current Insider builds) and i really like it, but it's still missing a lot of features. It still lacks poll support, GIF button, photo tagging (it was there in the old Silverlight app!)... The user profile card doesn't even show if that person follows you, and it's been an issue since the Windows 10 release last year. Posted from my laptop
  • Rolling out to EVERYONE now... except Windows users. Maybe later guys.
  • This is great for people that get offended by everything!
  • "This is great for people that choose to be offended by everything!". Fixed it for you. :-)
  • LOL ! Oh no, muh triggers! Halp me Twitter!
  • How about getting notifications working on windows 10 mobile?
