The social medium Twitter is testing an option for twitterers to ponder and change a heated response for publication.
Twitter gives you a suggestion to adjust your answer if it is going too far or is offensive.
According to Twitter, this is a limited experiment that only runs on Apple devices (iOS control). When a discussion gets heated, “you can say things you don’t mean,” Twitter said.
The Twitter intervention allows you to rethink your answer if it contains language that can be harmful.
When a twitterer clicks on send, he is warned that his language matches that in messages people have complained about. He is then asked if he wants to revise his tweet.
