The 140 character wonderland just introduced a new feature. So basically it's taking muting (yup that awesome feature used by many of us to tackle trolls without feeding their ego) to the next level. Quoting from the source itself.

"The option to mute notifications for Tweets you are mentioned in that contain particular words, phrases, usernames, emojis or hashtags. Muting will remove these Tweets from your Notifications tab, push notifications, SMS, and email notifications."

It certainly is a positive move, though it will not end cyber abuse, it is a positive step towards curbing it. I do believe it will change our Tweeperience for good. How we can set it up is explained in the pic below.

Having shared the options I do feel we need to realize that Twitter is just a platform, it’s us who are responsible for the conversation. Though structural changes and tools can change a lot in the conversation online, we would need to take a step forward to ensure our cyber spaces are sensitive and safe for all.

Through our projects #TweeSurfing and #Socialsurfing we attempt to do exactly that. Doing workshops on #OnlineSafety #CounterSpeech #SocialMedia for #SocialChange, it is our attempt to ensure that the cyber space is inclusive for all.

It was the sunny afternoon of 15th September, 2015 when our team comprising of Arnika Singh, Vikram Sheoran, Abhiruchi Ranjan and Nikita Blanes headed for Pitampura, to deliver a workshop on Social Surfing to a group of 50 students in the Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (VIPS).

Leh Degree College - Leh

As we write about the workshop in Leh, there are plenty of words coming to our mind and at the same time they all fall short of the brilliant experience that we had in that unbelievable place. Social Surfing would have been left incomplete if Leh was missed.
