Twitter has been coming up with a lot of updates and safety features to make the microblogging platform a safe place for users. On Wednesday, Twitter announced that it’s been testing a new feature which will allow users to remove followers without blocking them. The tech giant is at present testing the new feature, which is being called as ‘Soft Block’, on web. Twitter is conducting the trial of this latest feature on a small group of users before rolling it out for everyone. “We’re making it easier to be the curator of your own followers list. Now testing on web: remove a follower without blocking them,” the tech giant said.To remove a user from your profile, you need to click on ‘Followers’ option, then click on the three dot icon and select ‘Remove this follower’. This is Twitter’s fresh move to tackle privacy issues and abuse on the platform.

Earlier this month, Twitter had announced that it was testing a new feature that will autoblock accounts sending hateful messages and abuses. Once the ‘Safety Mode’ is on, Twitter would scan the content of a tweet for inappropriate language and found anything, the user’s account would be temporarily blocked for seven days. The microblogging site also launched a global test for its another new feature ‘Communities’ on Wednesday, which is similar to Facebook Groups that gives users a way to tweet to people with similar interests.Twitter said certain users can create ‘Communities’ to explore similar likings and interests, and more will be added in the coming months. However, the company did not disclose the number of users who can create ‘Communities’ in the test, but any user can participate in a group if invited. ‘Communities’ are publicly visible, though at this stage people need to be invited to join by a moderator or another member.Users will act as moderators, setting and enforcing standards for their groups.
