What you need to know
- The Twitter progressive web app now lets you remove followers.
- The same update adds new management options for Spaces.
- It is a server-side update and is available on all platforms that use the PWA version of Twitter.
Twitter rolls out an update to its progressive web app (PWA) near the end of each month. The October 2021 update for the Twitter PWA adds the ability to remove followers on the social media platform. It also adds new management features for Spaces, including preventing followers from seeing which Space you are passively listening to. The update started rolling out on October 29, 2021 and is available for all platforms that use the Twitter PWA, including Windows, Twitter for KaiOS, and Twitter Lite on Android.
Here's everything that's new for the Twitter PWA:
- Followers Management: The ability to remove followers is now available for all.
- Spaces: There is now a section in Privacy & Safety settings where you can control your preferences for Twitter Spaces. You can tweak whether your followers can see the Spaces you are passively listening to.
- Spaces: Listening to Spaces on Twitter.com is now available for all logged out users.
- Topics: We've added additional controls to Topic landing pages to give you the ability to follow or let us know if you're not interested.
- Video: We're experimenting with providing controls for adjusting playback speed of videos.
Many of the new capabilities within the Twitter PWA center around privacy and give users greater control over which actions can be seen by others.
Twitter also released several improvements and enhancements with the October 2021 update. You can read the complete changelog in the update's release notes.
