With around 328 million users worldwide, Twitter has gone from a small start-up in for the public 2006 to a broadcast tool of politicians and corporations in 2017.

One of these features, which is now active, is the tweet warning function. The new feature will warn users if the post contains sensitive videos or photos.

As of the moment, Facebook, as well as YouTube, already offer their own warning features. This platform capability simply works by censoring videos and photos that contain violence, sensuality, and other NSWF (Not-Safe-For-Work) content.

“The option to add one-time sensitive content warnings to photos and videos you Tweet is now available for everyone across Android, iOS, and web,” said the social media giant.

However, users still need to activate the new feature themselves. If you want to enable the new tweet warning function, you need to click the “add description” option.

After that, click the flag icon. Below, you can choose to include a warning for nudity, violence, or sensitive content.

Right now, this new Twitter feature is available for all users across the globe through their iOS and Android devices, as well as through Twitter’s desktop version. 

Other New Twitter Features

Digital Information World reported that Twitter would also offer new features. One of these is the color-change option. 

Just like its name states, this new function allows consumers to change their accounts’ color themes. They can choose purple, green, orange, or other provided color options. 

On the other hand, another Twitter enhancement is currently under development. The new Twitter Thread is expected to arrive soon, allowing users to link their replies. 

Consumers said that this new feature is quite needed, especially since Twitter is a platform people use to share their opinions and beliefs. 

In other news, Twitter posts are now being used by a new Russia-Ukraine map that offers the happenings in Ukraine. Meanwhile, some fake Chinese Twitter accounts were banned since they promoted the 2022 Beijing Olympics propaganda.
