Twitter will soon be adding a Report button to its Web version and Android app in response to the feedback provided by consumers. Twitter wants to clarify few of its rules in response to abusiveness that has been bothering the micro-blogging website. These threats specifically involved European authors, Members of the Parliament, and journalists.
Twitter’s senior director Del Harvey and UK general manager Tony Wang wrote, “Over the past week, we’ve been listening to your feedback on how we can improve our service. You told us that we need to make our rules clearer, simplify our abuse reporting process, and promote the responsible use of Twitter.”
In order to improve service and security, Twitter will be adding a report button using which consumers will be immediately able to flag messages and report abuse. This feature is already available on Twitter’s iOS app and mobile website and will make it to the web and Android platform. The good part is that consumers will no longer have to fill up forms or go through lengthy procedures in order to help maintain discipline on the site.
Twitter is working on this feature and expected to add it along with other new features in an update that might arrive by next month. The company has also recently updated its app on Windows 8 and Windows RT. One of the most important features available in this update is the ability to sign-in with multiple accounts, allowing consumers to manage their personal and business profiles easily.
Other important features in the update include native sign-up, improved speed, and a new Lists feature allows you to organize accounts that you follow by type for a more customized timeline view. The update is live and consumers can download the same from Windows Store.
