A new option will be activated when you click on the arrow in the upper right corner of the tweet. In addition to the ability to hide replies, the option “show hidden tweets” will also appear.

Twitter senior product manager Michelle Yasmeen Haq clarified that the user can only hide the answers under his tweets, without the possibility of deletion, and other users, if desired, will be able to disclose them.

According to the service representative, hiding tweets will become an additional moderation option besides blocking, ignoring (mute) and complaints. And viewing hidden answers is needed to avoid situations where users hide tweets that they don’t agree with or that they simply don’t like.

Recall that in the middle of February, Twitter began to test a new, more convenient, way to view profiles on mobile devices. Now users will not need to leave the chronicle if they want to get acquainted with the profile of the person or community of interest.
