(WHTM) — It’s a way for users to remove a follower without blocking them altogether. That user won’t be notified that they’ve been “soft blocked.” It’s another way Twitter is offering users more control while helping curb abuse and harassment.

And Google TV is adding new features. In households with multiple users, profiles will have the ability to be personalized and users will get TV show and movie recommendations tailored just for them. The new features will begin rolling out next month.
