Twitter Now Lets You Auto-Mute Eggs and Other Sketchy Accounts

Napier Lopez, reporting for The Next Web:

In that vein, you’ll now have the option to filter out posts from accounts without a profile picture (the ones with the default “egg” photo), as well as unverified emails or phone numbers. It’s a feature that’s been requested for some time, as it’s previously been easy for trolls to leverage new or unused accounts to harass people.

I suggested just this back in December.
