Reporting abusive tweets is getting easier with a new feature that lets you specify how a particular tweet in question is violating your privacy.

In its official tweet, the company wrote, "We want to move faster in reviewing reported Tweets that share personal information. Starting today, you'll be able to tell us more about the Tweet you are reporting."

For instance, if a tweet by a malicious user leaks out your personal phone number, you will be able to choose exactly the reason from the 'Report Tweet' section and specify how the tweet is abusive or harmful to you.


There are a couple of options you can choose from if the tweet reveals private information, such as phone number, address, government ID, and so on.
