Twitter users will soon be able to control who can mention their handle: report
Microblogging platform Twitter is reportedly working on allowing users to control who can mention them in tweets. According to researcher and application engineer Jane Manchun Wong, users will have two settings. They can either choose to allow others to mention them in tweets, except those they have blocked, or only allow their followers to mention their ID. Currently, Twitter users can tag and address any public account by adding “@” along with the username in their tweets and replies.
