Thanks in part to last month’s scandal over feminist campaigner Caroline Criado Perez, who was subjected to a barrage of Twitter abuse and whose supporters rallied to her cause by creating a petition for Twitter to institute a “report abuse” button, you can now report individual tweets for abuse or spam directly from Twitter.com.
Twitter’s latest fun feature, the line break, has yet to catch on with mainstream Tweeple – but it will.
And when it does, it may break Twitter.
Over at the AVC.com blog noted VC Fred Wilson has written about an interesting feature that he’s seen on his Twitter timeline this morning that encourages him to engage with a friend who has recently returned to Twitter after a period of inactivity.
This is an interesting development from Twitter who, like all the major social networks, continuously struggles with the problem of retention of users, and this prompt could play a significant role in keeping people interested. After all, who doesn’t like getting a “welcome back” message from a friend?
