Twitter will start testing its ‘hide replies’ feature next week, in Canada – TechCrunch

Twitter customers are getting extra management over which feedback are seen within the conversations they begin.

The corporate has been testing and speaking about this characteristic since earlier this 12 months, however beginning subsequent week, Twitter will truly roll it out to customers in Canada.

As you possibly can see within the GIF under, if you’re replies to your tweets, you’ll find a way choose any of them and hit the “hide reply” possibility. Nonetheless, because the identify implies, these posts gained’t be totally faraway from Twitter, simply hidden from the default view — everybody will nonetheless be capable of faucet on a grey icon to view hidden replies.

Right here’s how Twitter’s Michelle Yasmeen Haq and Brittany Forks explain the feature:

On a regular basis, folks begin necessary conversations on Twitter, from #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter, to discussions round #NBAFinals or their favourite tv reveals. These conversations convey folks collectively to debate, be taught, and giggle. That mentioned we all know that distracting, irrelevant, and offensive replies can derail the discussions that individuals need to have. We imagine folks ought to have some management over the conversations they begin.

Twitter Hide Replies

As my colleague Sarah Perez famous beforehand, the present implementation is open to not less than two criticisms — one, that it might enable customers to cover essential viewpoints or fact-checking of their tweets (perhaps quote-tweeting would be the higher technique transferring ahead), and two, that it nonetheless forces folks to wade by doubtlessly trollish or hateful content material in an effort to disguise replies.

Haq and Forks emphasize that Twitter remains to be in search of methods to enhance the characteristic: “By testing in one country we want to get feedback and better understand how this tool can improve before it’s available globally.”

And sure, the timing of the information is slightly awkward, coming proper after Twitter went down for about an hour.
