Twitter is expanding access to a feature dubbed Safety Mode, which provides users with a set of tools to defend themselves against the toxicity and abuse that still plagues the network. Safety Mode, which was first presented to a select number of testers in September, is now available in beta for additional users throughout English-speaking regions, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand.

According to the corporation, the increased access will help it to have a better understanding of how effectively Safety Mode works and what adjustments are still needed. Safety Mode will also notify users when they might need to enable it, according to Twitter.

Twitter's conversation health is a constant fight for it as a public social network. It's rolled out a number of tweaks and updates over the years in an attempt to address this issue, including features that automatically hide unpleasant and insulting replies behind an extra click; allow users to limit who can reply to their tweets; hide users from search; and warn users about conversations that are starting to go off the rails, among other things.

Safety Mode, on the other hand, is more of a defensive tool than one meant to steer talks in the correct direction.

It operates by prohibiting accounts who respond to the original poster with damaging language or send unsolicited, repetitive comments — such as insults and abusive remarks or mentions — for seven days. Those prohibited accounts will be unable to follow the original poster's Twitter account, see their tweets and responses, or send them Direct Messages while Safety Mode is activated.

The language used in the answers and the relationship between the tweet's author and those answering are analyzed by Twitter's algorithms to select which accounts to temporarily ban. The account will not be blocked if the poster follows or interacts with the replier regularly, for example.

The goal of Safety Mode is to allow users who are being harassed a method to swiftly throw up a defense system without having to individually ban each account that is bothering them, which is nearly impossible when a tweet gets popular and the poster is subjected to increased levels of abuse. This is a condition that affects not just celebrities and famous individuals whose "cancellations" generate news, but also female journalists, members of disadvantaged communities, and, on occasion, ordinary people.

Twitter learnt from early testers that consumers want more help detecting when an assault is about to start, according to the company. As a consequence, when the algorithm identifies potentially dangerous or unwelcome responses, the firm claims the function will now urge users to activate it. If the user is not actively on Twitter, these prompts may display in their Home Timeline or as a device notification. This should save the user the trouble of having to search through Twitter's settings to find the functionality.

During the early testing, Safety Mode was put to the test by 750 people. It will now roll out the beta to about half of the users in the supported markets (at random). It claims it's looking on ways for such users to provide Twitter feedback directly through the app.

Twitter has not stated when it aims to make Safety Mode available to all of its users worldwide.
