Twitter says 'meaningful' ways to combat abuse are coming in November

Mashable 

Twitter is promising to further combat abuse on its network. The company said it will introduce more features and new policies that address safety next month, a move that comes as Twitter's reputation as a home for trolls has hit new heights -- and may have even stopped the company from being acquired. The announcement came during its quarterly earnings report on Thursday. Twitter said the team has been working for the last few months to build "the most important safety features and updating our safety policies to give people more control over their Twitter experience." The changes will be "meaningful updates" and address the "safety policy, our product, and enforcement strategy," according to its shareholders letter.
