Popular microblogging platform Twitter has been working on major updates that define how people use the social media app in the last year, testing out some features and keeping those that stick. Now, Twitter will make it easier to be the curator of your own followers list by letting you remove a follower without blocking them.

RIP good old block unblock 🙁

The feature is getting tested out on Twitter for the web, as with the other features, Twitter will most likely monitor the response and keep it if it’s well adopted.

Twitter is also testing edge-to-edge media in tweets on iOS, creating a more full-screen, almost Instagram-like experience for the photos and videos in your timeline.

The feature which has received a very negative response helps Twitter address concerns over image cropping that it’s been dealing with over the last few years. Image cropping algorithms have been informally shown to have a bias toward white faces.
