Twitter is launching the opportunity to let you change who can respond to a tweet after you post it, the company announced on Tuesday. You could already limit who responded to tweets thanks to a feature that was launched a lot in August, but you had to set that preference while writing the tweet – with this update you can change who can respond at a later time, which can be a useful way to reduce harassment. The feature will be available globally on iOS, Android and online.
To change who can reply, click or tap the three-point menu on a tweet and look for the option in the menu that appears. You can do this so that everyone can respond, only people you follow can respond, or only people you mention in your tweet can respond.
