Twitter enables users to 'hide' tweeted replies
November 27, 2019

Twitter has started enabling its users to hide their tweeted replies that could be seen as abusive or harassing.  

In a statement announcing the feature, head of product management Suzanne Xie said the move is part of an effort to help users feel safe and comfortable while talking on Twitter.      

Hidden replies can still be peeked at and engaged with by tapping a gray icon that will appear, but they will no longer be active parts of the main exchange that sprang from a tweet, according to Twitter.

Xie said this way, users have more control over the conversations they start but people can still see the entire conversation.
