Twitter is testing new conversation settings

Have you ever found yourself getting unsolicited replies to your tweets? We don’t have that many followers either, but apparently it is a real problem.

In order to foster more meaningful engagement and keep potentially harmful or just plain trolling away, Twitter is testing new conversation settings that will allow a limited number of users (for now) to select who can reply to their tweets. Here are some of the settings you will soon be able to choose:

  • Everyone: the current default setting
  • Only people you follow
  • Only people you mention

This seems like a great measure to keep conversation civil. We hope it is rolled out sooner than later!

Communicate safely here.
