Lists of Twitter accounts used to harass or intimidate people are against the rules and can now also be reported to the social media platform. Twitter reports that.
It is about the Lists feature of Twitter, which allows users to place accounts on special lists. These lists can be used to block or follow large groups of users at once, but are sometimes also used to harass groups of Twitter users.
According to Twitter, abuse of lists is not allowed. That's why Lists now also gets a Report button in the iOS app. The Android app and the desktop edition of Twitter will follow soon.
According to Mashable , the creators of lists that go wrong are then temporarily timed out until they delete the list. Until now, users could only be removed from such lists if they blocked the creator.
