Twitter Now Lets You Report Multiple Abusive Tweets At Once

Twitter is one of the largest social networks out there. Sadly, where you have that much free exchange of dialogue, you also end up with a bunch of people saying and doing some pretty mean and offensive things.

Since bullying, mocking, and other forms of harassment don't always fit in 140 characters, Twitter is now giving users the ability to attach multiple tweets to a single report.

Twitter Adds A Message Button To Tweets, Wants Users To Share Tweets In DMs

For quite a while, Twitter has been trying to make Direct Messages a thing, and today the latest improvement has arrived: a direct message button in tweets. Whether this will make anyone actually share a specific tweet in a private message, who knows, but it's there anyway. Keep in mind this button is only being added to Twitter's mobile apps; no word if it'll be added to the web app, or anywhere else for that matter.

[Update: APK For Android N] Android Wear v1.5 Adds Proper Support For Marshmallow's Doze Mode [APK Download]

When Android 6.0 landed, it brought a big new battery-saving feature called Doze mode. While it was great at reining in known troublemakers like social network apps and misbehaving games, Doze had a bad habit of knocking out apps with genuinely important roles to play. One such app was Android Wear. Today, a new update to the Wear companion app adds awareness of Doze Mode and prompts users to add it to the protected list.

What's New

Twitter Announces 'Best Tweets First' Mode, Rolling Out In The Coming Weeks

You may have heard about the fury last week over a rumored change to the way Twitter organizes Tweets. The rumor claimed the stream was going to become algorithmic like Facebook, but it appears now that was overblown. Twitter just announced a new feature that allows users to see the "best Tweets" at the top of the timeline, but it's optional and doesn't alter the overall layout.
