Twitter is testing a filter that demotes abusive DMs to a separate list

Twitter is testing a filter that demotes abusive DMs to a separate list. The goal is to put unwanted messages out of view, and more generally to reduce abuse on the platform. Users can find the new feature in Messages, Existing Message Requests, then tap on “Show additional messages, including those that may contain offensive content.” This feature is one of a string of new additions that automatically identify abusive or inappropriate content rather than waiting for human users to flag it, a strategic component of Twitter’s on-going efforts to clean up the user experience.
