Social media is just one large controversy, but if we had to choose which platform has the most controversial users. More specifically, Twitter is the platform where people think it’s okay to project their inappropriate, socially deaf, and blind opinions. You’ll see more fights among users on Twitter than on any other platform. There are many reasons behind this. Twitter has slowly become a political hub instead of the micro-messaging service it was intended to be. And while in most cases, it’s a rather entertaining development, it certainly isn’t so for those looking for acceptance and good vibes.
There’s an unholy amount of hate speech, disagreements, and arguments on the platform, which is ironic considering how seriously Twitter works against hate speech. Celebrities are threatened and made fun of for the most basic things. It’s almost as if people write whatever comes to their mind on Twitter because that’s what Twitter’s objective was.
Twitter was launched as a way of sending out random, small updates to your friends and family. His includes going to the hairdresser’s, playing a match, and the witty thoughts that pop into your head in the shower.
However, it looks like people took it literally and have forgotten that others have feelings and cannot say whatever they want in the name of free speech. And this is not without consequences.
According to a survey conducted by Snapchat, anxiety, loneliness, isolation, guilt, and depression is what users feel on the platform.
Well, that’s not a very good score, don’t you think? After Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, things are getting more complicated. However, we’re hoping that as soon as Musk gets a handle on things, we’ll surely see Twitter’s better side. There are also options to report and block users to ensure your experience isn’t ruined.
Today’s blog will discuss how you can see who reported your tweet on Twitter.
How to See Who Reported Your Tweet
Let’s get straight to your initial question: how can you see who has reported your tweet on Twitter? Well, we’re sorry to say that that’s not possible. For security reasons, reporting is an anonymous action on Twitter.
Think about it: a big politician or internet presence has posted something inappropriate. Would you want them to know you’re the one who reported their post? No, right? So, to protect your identity, Twitter won’t disclose this information to anyone.
Let us first explain to you how reporting a tweet on Twitter works.
You open Twitter and see a post about something inappropriate many teenagers have liked. You’re concerned about this content, so you report it to Twitter. A team at Twitter will then examine the tweet to see if it’s anything serious enough to be removed. You can report a tweet as many times as you’d like.
However, this doesn’t mean anything. Even if you report a single piece of content a hundred times, it won’t be removed unless it is something that needs to be reported.
You can check out what counts as sensitive content on Twitter on Google to find out if it’s worth reporting that tweet. If it isn’t, but you’re still concerned, you can also approach that user personally and let them know the problem.
Generally, the best idea is to report the tweet, block the user, and move along. This is because it’s pointless trying to argue with anyone on any social media platform for something like this. Unless the situation is grave or you stand to lose something, all an argument will achieve is to put you in a bad mood.
If you’re sure this tweet is a clear violation, you can also tweet a screenshot of that content to let other users know about it. This is because tweets that aren’t reported as much have a smaller chance of being taken down, as anyone can guess.
Here’s how to report a tweet on Twitter
Step 1: Launch the Twitter mobile app on your phone.
Step 2: On the Twitter home tab. You’ll see four icons at the bottom. Locate and tap on the magnifying glass to go to the search tab.
Step 3: Enter the name/username of the user whose tweet you wish to report. Tap on their profile and locate the tweet you have a problem with.
Step 4: Adjacent to their username, at the right corner of the tweet, you’ll see a three dots icon. Tap on it.
Step 5: The last option on the pop-up menu will be Report Tweet. Tap on that, and you’ll be taken to the Report an issue page. Tab on the black Start report button at the bottom.
Step 6: Now, you’ll be asked several questions to narrow down the exact problem in the tweet so that it’s easier to take the necessary actions.
There you go, now you know how to report a tweet you’re facing a problem with!
Here’s how to block a user on Twitter
Step 1: Go to their Twitter profile.
Step 2: Tap the three dots icon at the right corner. Tap on the second from the last icon called Block from the drop-down menu.
Step 3: Next, you’ll see a confirmation message. Tap on Block again, and you’ll be good to go!
In the end
As our blog comes to its end, we’ll quickly rehash what we’ve discussed today.
It’s impossible to see who has reported your tweet since that goes directly against what minimal security Twitter provides. It also doesn’t make sense because if someone finds out who has reported their tweet, it’s not easy to predict their next step.
So, if you wish to report a tweet, go ahead by all means. To ensure your actions reach their goal, check out the sensitive content benchmark on Twitter on Google. If your problem is not listed there, it’s best to block the user and go your way. Getting into an argument with a stranger on Twitter will never bring the satisfaction you think it will.
