When we call for unity: How Twitter, Facebook and Twitter’s new ‘safety zones’ work
- by admin
Twitter has launched a “safety zone” for the users it claims are its most influential.
The new feature, which is in place across the social network and the mobile app, aims to help the platform’s “more popular” users find each other on a more regular basis.
However, the feature is being deployed without any oversight, and users may not know what the zone is for, as Twitter says it is only for “the most influential users”.
Twitter says that the “safety zones” have been in place since February but are only now being rolled out in a more systematic manner.
The feature will be enabled for the first time on Wednesday in a new feature called “Trending Moments”.
The feature allows users to “like” the trending topics that are trending at the moment, and then a series of links will pop up, showing the latest tweets that users have liked.
The site says that it will only show users who have been trending at least 100 times during a given day, or a total of 1 million times in the last 30 days.
This “Trends” section will be a section of the Twitter app called “Featured Stories” and it will be updated periodically with a number of interesting tweets that people have posted in the past.
But users won’t know what is going on inside the safety zone until they click the “like button” next to the topic they have liked, or when they tap the “Trend” button.
This feature is set to be rolled out globally on Wednesday.
Users are also being given the option to “dislike” trending topics, and the feature will also allow users to mark their favourites to be shown in the “Favorite Moments” section.
Users can also mark posts they find “disproportionately” offensive, and they can block users for doing so.
Twitter has faced backlash for the recent rise of violent behaviour on the platform, with many calling for its banishment.
In an attempt to appease users, the platform is also offering a series a “safe zones” where users can be able to hide their location for up to 72 hours from the time they leave the safety zones.
Users will also be able “see where they are on the map”, and can choose whether or not to “share” their location information with friends.
This privacy option was introduced in February to counter rising threats of “lone wolf” attacks, which are often carried out on the internet by people who are not aware of their location.
Users were also warned that sharing location information could be considered “disrespectful”.
However, it appears that the feature has only been rolled out for a limited number of users, with the vast majority of users only having the option of sharing their location with friends or family.
Twitter says this feature will only be rolled into the US, and will only work in “limited circumstances”.
It has also announced that users who are banned from the site will not receive notifications from the service until the ban is lifted.
This has sparked some controversy on Twitter, with users suggesting that the system was “disguised” as a feature to provide an “alternative to ban people”.
While Twitter says the feature was created to help users “find and like” trending content, many users have pointed out that it has a clear and disturbing history of allowing “suspect accounts” to remain active.
The Twitter CEO has also called for the banning of the accounts that are “harassing and intimidating”.
In response to this criticism, Twitter has also launched an internal investigation into the problem.
In a blog post, the company said that the new feature is intended to protect its users and ensure that the safety of the public is maintained.
However the company also admitted that the current system for policing users’ location “does not meet Twitter’s own standards and has resulted in a growing number of unsafe interactions and the proliferation of misinformation.”
Twitter also warned users to not post false information, saying that it “does encourage moderation of accounts and users for posting misinformation”.
“The safety of our users is our highest priority,” the blog post read.
“But when we are unable to protect our community, we will work to improve the safety system for our users, including by developing a system that protects them more effectively.”
The feature was also criticised for having a “negative effect” on the safety and security of Twitter users.
Twitter claims that the number of accounts banned for violating its safety guidelines is decreasing, but it also warned people to “keep an eye on your surroundings”.
