Twitter on Wednesday announced that it is testing a new feature that will allow users to decide who can and who cannot reply to their tweets.

According to The Verge some of the Twitter accounts are already using the new feature.

Earlier, everybody could reply to everybody's tweet if the person's profile wasn't private or blocked but the new feature will give users the power to customise and choose who gets the right to reply. (ANI)
