This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now.
In an effort to make Twitter an overall safer place, the company has instituted a number of changes to help curb abusive behavior on the platform.
These include steps to prevent users that have been permanently banned from making new accounts.
Hiding tweets that are overly abusive and also adding a safe search that will filter out sensitive content.
