Twitter is testing out a new feature Prompts that lets users get a feel for a conversation before joining in. The social platform announced today that it is testing new prompts on both Android and iOS apps. Twitter’s official Support account made the announcement.

The new ‘prompts’ feature will notify the user before they engage in a potentially heated debate. It will appear below specific tweets on the platform, allowing people to take note of it before plunging into the replies. “Conversations like these can be intense,” says the social media company, as an example of the new prompts that emerge right in the middle of a conversation.

“We’re testing prompts on Android and iOS that give you a heads up if the convo you’re about to enter could get heated or intense”, Twitter stated. The company has also shared screenshots and examples.

After the testing phase, Twitter’s parameters for determining which conversations would receive the prompt may change. Twitter also stated that while showing the prompt, it may take into account the tweet topic as well as the relationship between the Tweet author and the reply. Twitter, on the other hand, has not stated when the new feature would be available. The prompts are the latest attempt by the company to increase social privacy and prevent harassment on the platform.

In addition to this, Twitter stated last month that it will roll out a safety feature that will allow users to temporarily suspend accounts for seven days if they use harsh language or post uninvited comments. When the feature is enabled, Twitter’s systems will monitor the content of tweets to determine the likelihood of negative interaction and the author-replier relationship. Accounts that are often interacted with will not be automatically blocked.
