How it works

When the feature is turned on Twitter will monitor and detect negative engagement and block accounts it finds abusive. It will however not block accounts that you frequently engage with.

Who can use it

Safety Mode is currently a test so not everyone will be able to use it. You can enable it through the privacy and safety settings.
