Twitter Will Now Prompt You To Revise ‘harmful’ Replies

In its latest effort to deal with rampant harassment on its platform, Twitter will look into giving users a second chance before they tweet. In a new feature, the company is testing, users who use “harmful” language will see a prompt suggesting that they self-edit before posting a reply.

Twitter confirmed that the test feature will be limited to replies only for now. Twitter also explained that its systems will detect harmful language based on the kind of language used in other tweets that have been reported.

The app is also implementing a new layout when viewing tweets on an iPhone and on the web.
