 Twitter, in the past tweaked its tools and provided individuals more options  to control what they were exposed to online, as well as the platform updated its guidelines a handful of times.

But now only a few days ago, Twitter has announced that it is trying out another route while the company asked  people outside of the company to propose ways that it Twitter can promote healthy and open as well as  civil conversations online.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, on Thursday tweeted that Twitter   isn’t proud of how people have taken advantage of its service, specifically calling out troll armies, misinformation campaigns & bots.
