Twitter is introducing a new method of adding content warnings to photos and videos in tweets.

The social media platform unveiled the feature with an instructional video, showing that users can now add categories and content warnings to separate tweets; its previous method only allowed users to add content warnings to all their tweets. A flag button can be seen when a user edits an image or video, and upon choosing the category and sending the tweet, the photo or video will be blurred out with the content warning. Other users who come across the tweet will be given the option to view it in full or just scroll past.

“People use Twitter to discuss what’s happening in the world, which sometimes means sharing unsettling or sensitive content,” the platform shared. “We’re testing an option for some of you to add one-time warnings to photos and videos you Tweet out, to help those who might want the warning.”

A public launch date for the new feature is yet to be announced.

In related news, Twitter has acquired and shut down Slack’s competitor, Quill.
