Twitter on Thursday announced efforts to address concerns over privacy protection on social media.
The company tweeted about an update to its abuse reporting functions, allowing users to specify personal information issues, with a GIF showing step-by-step instructions.
The social media company earlier in the day tweeted an image on its main account showing a speech bubble containing an ellipsis, which is used to signify a message being typed.
Twitter’s move comes a day after Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg announced plans to rebuild some of the company’s features with a focus on private communications.
Social media and tech companies are facing pressure on privacy issues, since news reports last year revealed political consultancy Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained data on tens of millions of Facebook users. The scandal sparked a wave of concern about how the company gathers personal information, shares it with partners and uses it to sell digital advertising.
