Twitter is now enabling its users to provide more information on the posts that they report as spam.
The social network announced in a Twitter Safety tweet that users can specify the type of spam they are reporting, including suspicion that the tweets originated from fake accounts.
When a user clicks on the drop-down menu in the top-right-hand corner of a tweet and selects “Report Tweet,” followed by, “It’s suspicious or spam,” they can select from the following options:
- The account tweeting this is fake.
- Includes a link to a potentially harmful, malicious or phishing site.
- The hashtags included seem unrelated.
- Uses the reply function to spam.
- It’s something else.
