This is huge news for anyone who deals with loser Internet trolls on the daily. Who are we kidding, we've all been cyber bullied before, and it's hella hurtful and annoying. Instead of going in the direction of Instagram and ripping off Snapchat, Twitter has blessed us with a little something called the 'quality filter.' Twitter said in their blog post, "When turned on, the filter can improve the quality of Tweets you see by using a variety of signals, such as account origin and behavior. Turning it on filters lower-quality content, like duplicate Tweets or content that appears to be automated, from your notifications and other parts of your Twitter experience." 

"It does not filter content from people you follow or accounts you've recently interacted with – and depending on your preferences; you can turn it on or off in your notifications settings." In other words, this update appears to be an attempt to lessen the amount of spammy and abusive messages you may come across. Hooray for troll blocks! Hopefully, the new update can help with cyber bullying and the like, and if you want to try it, it's easy. Tap your notification section, go into your settings and switch on the new filter. Easy, breezy, and troll-free.
