Twitter users now have a way to report abusive behavior in lists.

The social network revealed the update in a Twitter Safety tweet, saying it went live on iOS Monday, with Android and the web to follow soon.

Twitter said in the help center post linked to in the tweet, “Twitter strives to provide an environment where people can feel free to express themselves. If abusive behavior happens, we want to make it easy for people to report it to us. Multiple tweets or lists can be included in the same report, helping us gain better context, while investigating the issues to get them resolved faster.”

To report a list, users can navigate to that list, click or tap the three dots icon, select report and select “It’s abusive or harmful,” at which point Twitter will request additional information about the issue being reported.

Once the report is submitted, the social network will send an email confirming its receipt and providing additional suggestions on how people can improve their experience on Twitter. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
