The little birdy that could is now being censored by the Twitter parental control function.

Providing the option of being warned about content that may be offensive, the social media giant is implementing a function that will keep images away from viewers who may be sensitive to certain subject matters. The Twitter parental control function would provide much comfort to guardians everywhere in letting them know their children are safe on the Internet.

This new addition to Twitter is still in its testing phase.

Implications - Social media is becoming more than just a way to pass the time. Consumers are beginning to identify themselves through these sites and are attracted to products that are integrated with them. Companies trying to stay on the cutting edge of technology could implement an aspect of a website into their items.
