Twitter is testing a new prompt that will alert users before they get into a conversation that could get heated or intense on Android and iOS.
“Ever wanted to know the mood of a conversation before you joined in?” We’re testing prompts on Android and iOS that alert you if the conversation you’re about to enter could get hot or intense. This is a work in progress as we learn how to better carry on a healthy conversation, ”Twitter wrote from its official support account.
Prompts are a way to give users more context on the conversations they see on Twitter and help you make informed decisions about how and if they want to join those conversations.

For example, according to the examples provided on the Twitter support account, one of the prompts read: “Warning; conversations like these could be intense. In another case, the prompt reads:” Let’s keep us each other ”and lists three bullet points on facts, diversity and inclusion.
This is the latest attempt by the microblogging platform to use prompts to reduce harassment and abuse on the platform. Previously, he had tested another prompt that warned users before they tweeted something that might be offensive.
It can also display a prompt to users if they try to retweet an article they think they haven’t read to curb the spread of disinformation.
