As social media platforms emerge, a lot of things could happen and it could be good or bad depending on the situation. Twitter has managed to be one of the most popular social media apps that are being used to interact with different people on the Internet. But like any other stuff, you have no control on what people will say and it may be better to block and mute accounts that are toxic on Twitter.
Twitter is a social media platform that allows its users to post short messages called Tweets. Everyone can express their thoughts on Twitter and can post their opinions about the things that they want. Having said that, you won’t be able to filter the negative Tweets that will be displayed on your Twitter’s feed.
Also, everyone can create a dummy account or those fake accounts to spread fake news, hatred and other negative thoughts. If you happen to come across these kinds of accounts, feel free to report this on Twitter or block and mute accounts that you don’t want to see on your news feed. Learn how you can do that by following the steps written below.
