Twitter reduces visibility of stupid copy / paste tweets – review Geek

Twitter has long had problems with spammy copy / paste posts. Most recently, there was an influx of users who claimed to be “done with the NBA”

;, and shared identically written tweets en masse. Twitter is (finally) taking steps to reduce this type of behavior by limiting the visibility of blatant copy / paste tweets.

According to the Twitter Comms account, the company has “seen an increase in copypasta” recently (which is not exactly “copypasta”, but okay) and will take action starting immediately.

These tweets clearly fall into Twitter’s guidelines for limiting visibility, especially during “violent and spammy behavior” – because what are those stupid tweets if not spam? Nothing. They are spam.

As an avid Twitter user, I’m glad to see the company take steps to get rid of this type of behavior. Now if it could just do that, I make the network less of a cesspool, we would be in great shape.

Here is hope.
