Twitter's Verified Elite Can Now Filter Out the Praise/Abuse From the Plebs

Twitter's revealed a new feature it's built to keep its verified celebrity elite happy, with blue-tick users now able to view only RTs and mentions from other tick-having power tweeters.

Verified users now have a selection field inside the @ or Connect field, which lets them see all replies, filtered ones that uses "an algorithm" to filter out spam, plus a verified toggle that only displays interactions from other verified users.

It'll make it even easier to Ricky Gervais to massage his own ego to exploding point. [Twitter]
