Twitter Adds Options to Reduce Notifications for Users

Twitter has just updated their interface to help make it easier for users to reduce the number of notifications they are getting, and allow users to experience an overall higher quality of tweets.  The move makes it possible for people to limit Twitter notifications only to people who they are following.  They also added a new quality filter that users are able to take advantage of.

The quality filter allows people to limit notifications from people based on the age of their account (newer accounts are more often going to be spammers) and the account behavior.  So, if a new account is sending out tons of tweets, it is likely something that the user doesn’t want to see, so they [...]

Alert: Illegal Ransomware Affiliate Network Launched!
