Developers can now access Twitter’s useful ‘Hide Replies’ feature
Twitter has opened up “Hide Replies” to enable third-party app developers to integrate this welcome new feature into their own software.
Hide Replies was rolled out worldwide last November but, as so many of the social network’s features initially, it was limited to Twitter’s own app.
The feature allows users to hide specific replies to their conversations. While these can be unhidden if other users choose, it helps to filter out online trolls aiming to disrupt conversations.
