How to check and view hidden replies to a tweet

Twitter has its moments, no doubt about it. But an incredibly public forum like this one also has its downsides, especially users who just want to seek attention and not really contribute anything relevant to a meaningful conversation.

If you’re someone who is plagued by offensive or irrelevant tweets by such users, Twitter is releasing a new feature to ensure you have more control on a conversation while ensuring complete transparency for anyone participating on your Twitter thread.

As of now, only Canada will have access to this feature as it is still being tested. But we’re hopeful that it works because this will mean you can check and keep an eye on unsavory/irrelevant replies to your tweets.
