User security is currently one of the top priorities. In order to ensure the preservation of personal information, Twitter added to the currently known reports that report this type of tweets a new step.

By means of a GIF, it guided its users to apply this new path. Upon discovering a tweet with their personal information, a user would click “Report Tweet” as they would have previously. After designating the publication as “abusive or harmful” and including “private information”, the user will be presented with a list of options detailing the different types of information. Users will be able to check as many options as appropriate.

In addition to the information Twitter specifically asks for, Twitter has implemented several updates to improve overall health and safety on the site in recent times.
Now, it tests a kind of moderation that allows users to hide certain replies to their tweets.

In February, the microblogging platform banned third-party tools that facilitated spam activity on its service.

As advanced by Twitter, this new reporting process will make it easier to flag tweets containing personal information.

The company did not disclose whether the new process could result in expedited reviews or actions against certain reported accounts or tweets.
