Twitter wants to support you in developing data protection functions

Twitter is testing new features that will enable users to better understand different privacy settings and options and provide more transparency about the impact of these changes on the Tweeting process.

This will allow more Twitter users to make sure they're tweeting the settings that are most relevant to them, and provide warnings and tips to provide more context when these changes can be implemented.

All changes are currently in the very early testing phase, so they may never be released. But here's a look at what's currently being researched.

Twitter is initially taking the new advice into account when changing its privacy settings, which can better define what the change means for your Tweets.

With this suggested update, if you have a protected account and you reply to someone who doesn't follow you, you'll get a reminder that unless publicly announced, they won't see your reply and invite you to make changes.

This will help users become more aware of the effects of these changes in the context of the broader use of Twitter, which can be important for those who make tweets private due to personal issues or concerns.

If your tweet was posted suddenly, due to a response, you should probably be aware of this before continuing.

The platform is also considering a new, more transparent account switching process built into tweet writing to make the process more straightforward.

With this update, your avatar, name, ID, and privacy status can be displayed in the creation window, helping users to avoid tweets from a fake account and publicly sharing the tweets to their audience.

Twitter also tests audience variables checks for your tweets, which are also checked in the compose box, and it solves some of the same issues.

This solution appears to be designed to help reduce the need for multiple accounts, and thus reduce the need to switch accounts. But for those managing branded accounts and other presence, both options have their place.

The platform also plans to take a fresh look at the various privacy settings to make people aware of their choices.

“We found that many people are not aware of all the available dialog and discovery controls,” Twitter said.

The new alert will walk you through all the different privacy settings and controls. This helps users to better understand how to determine the audience for their Tweets.

Twitter is looking for help in raising awareness of discovery metrics. Especially if there is suspicious or unwanted activity on your account.

Twitter reminds users how to find the account and then prompts them to change these settings (if they want to).

Twitter offers a number of privacy tools and options. But many of them are difficult to access.

The platform is designed to help users better understand each element and its applications. This can play an important role in reducing unnecessary experiences and keeping tweets safe.
