Twitter could bring new graphics filters for direct messages

Twitter reportedly is working on an option that will allow users to choose whether to view or filter graphic media sent to them via Direct Messages or DMs. Reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong discovered the feature that might only be available for direct messaging. According to the screenshot shared by Wong, users can enable or disable the “Filter Graphics Media” option on Twitter. If you enable the feature, a warning will be displayed above the messages that may contain graphic media with the option to display the content with an additional step.

Reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong divided the information of the supposedly upcoming Twitter function on the platform itself. The option to filter graphic media is displayed in direct messages. It is likely that the content will be filtered and a warning will appear if it is enabled, but the content will remain visible if it is disabled.

It is not clear whether users will be given the option to further personalize the type of graphic media they wish to display without warning signs. All graphic media (nudity, sexual content or violence) can be aggregated on Twitter. It is also not clear whether the new filter only applies to new message requests or whether all messages fall within its area of ​​responsibility, even from previously approved senders.

The graphic media filter is not active on the microblogging website, nor have users reported discovering it. Twitter has not officially said anything that such a feature is in the works.

Twitter could also be working on another direct messaging feature, Wong reported last month. The social media platform may soon offer users the ability to selectively mute incoming DM requests. This would disable notifications for repeated requests from the same sender and place the unaccepted conversation at the bottom of the users’ message request list.
