Online harassment on Twitter has gotten so bad that some users opt to never read their mentions, while others are driven to log off the platform forever.Now, Twitter is addressing the problem with a new anti-harassment tool, according to Bloomberg. Twitter is developing a feature that would allow users to filter out certain keywords from their timeline and mentions. This anti-harassment feature, which has been in the works for about a year, will give users the power to block certain offensive words and slurs.This new tool is Twitter’s latest attempt to curb online harassment on its platform. Previously, Twitter made it easier for people to report a string of offensive Tweets, but this feature is the most control the company has ever given its users in the fight against harassment.
