Twitter is now one of the most popular social networks in the world. Basically, Twitter allows you to post and interact with tweets, restricted to 140 characters. As of march 2016, Twitter had more than 310 million monthly active users. San Francisco-based company has been rolling out updates for its app in order to improve user experience and compete with rivals in the market.
Twitter has been serious in preventing offensive or abusive content on the service in recent years. Last year, Twitter launched a feature that allowed users to block words, hashtags and emoji from showing up in their mentions. With the latest version of Twitter, you now can block content that it deemed potentially sensitive or mute accounts from the search results right on Twitter.com.
