Twitter adds hide reply feature to address comment spamming and harassment

Twitter adds hide reply feature to address comment spamming and harassment. The new feature lets users hide individual replies to a post without blocking the user or deleting the tweet altogether, and requires other users to press on a small icon in the right-hand corner of the tweet to see hidden replies. Twitter says blocking and muting other users sometimes isn’t enough, so this feature allows users to actively police their posts. This feature is part of Twitter’s larger strategic on-going efforts to clean up the platform and reduce toxic discussion and abuse. Mashable
