    Twitter has finally rolled out some content filters to help curb abusive behavior on the service.

    When turned on, the filter can improve the quality of Tweets you see by using a variety of signals, such as account origin and behavior. Turning it on filters lower-quality content, like duplicate Tweets or content that appears to be automated, from your notifications and other parts of your Twitter experience. It does not filter content from people you follow or accounts you’ve recently interacted with – and depending on your preferences, you can turn it on or off in your notifications settings.

    Twitter and Instagram seem to be such cesspools of negativity as far as commenting is concerned.

    Not perfect solutions, but imo a good start that should've been implemented a LONG time ago.

    I didn't know how bad Instagram got until I saw Kevin Smith screenshot what that asshole said to his daughter.

    It seems worse if you have any level of celebrity, or if you're a woman, those two options get it the worst and it's one of the reasons I've debated leaving "social" media altogether

    Leaving social media three years ago was the best decision I ever made. It was just not worth the stress it put on me. I understand this is not the case for everyone and know it can be a wonderful way to connect with people but I couldn't be bothered to use any of it again.
