Twitter to make reporting abuse and blocking ‘easier’ – BBC Newsbeat

Twitter is making changes aimed at allowing users to report abuse or offensive content more easily.

A new reporting procedure, changes to the way users block others and new ways of dealing with reported tweets are among the changes outlined by the social network.

Twitter told Newsbeat the changes would give users “more control over their experience”.

The changes come after several high profile cases of abuse.

Twitter’s head of public policy in Europe, Sinead McSweeney said: “We’ve always said that users’ safety is a priority. It’s a job that we never regard as done.”

The social network said the changes will take effect gradually “in the coming weeks”.
