Twitter New Feature: Twitter may soon allow users to remove followers without blocking them – Eagles Vine

NEW DELHI: Twitter is busy introducing features and settings that allow users to have a better experience. Recently, the company introduced a safety feature which autoblocks accounts sending harmful or abusive tweets to a user. Now, the social networking giant has started testing a new privacy tool.
Twitter has begun testing a new privacy tool which allows users to remove a follower without blocking them. The company is presently testing the remove follower feature on the web. Twitter also said that users can remove followers from the follower list on their profile page.

Users just have to click on the three dot-menu next to a follower’s name and click ‘Remove follower’. After this all the tweets shared by a user will not appear on the timeline of the follower. The removed follower will then have to follow you again to see your tweets on their timeline and if you have protected tweets then they would need your approval to become a follower again.
This new feature is different from blocking someone, which keeps them from viewing your tweets and directly messaging you. On the other hand, this new feature functions like an unfollow button.

Apart from this new privacy tool, Twitter has also announced that it is testing edge-to-edge media in tweets on iOS. According to a report by The Verge, “Twitter is testing the change because it wants to better support conversations that are both visual and text-based.”
Twitter has also shared a video of how this new feature will look.
