Twitter will filter feeds for iOS users

Twitter is rolling out a “quality filter” to “verified” iOS smartphone and tablet (Apple) users, which may mean that some followers won’t see some tweets, even those that are legitimate.  Tech Crunch as a story here.  

As reported, threats and harassment (and misuse by overseas enemies) has become a real headache for Twitter. 

In practice, it’s hard to look at all the tweets more than an hour or so old unless you look all the time, because there is so much “quasi-spam”.  So I often look at the specific feeds of various parties directly, even some that I don’t “follow”.  I’m more interested in individuals than companies or organizations.
