Twitter comes up with new feature to control replies and conversation
Twitter plans to make conversation on its platform a little more personal by adding a new feature. According to Twitter’s Director of Product , the platform has been since 2019 working to give people more control over their conversations starting with the ability to hide replies and so the company has started to test a new functionality which will let a user decide who can reply to tweets and take part in a conversation.
Explaining the rationale behind introducing the new feature which will let the Twitterati decide on who can take part in the conversation, Suzanne explained that while Twitter remains a platform where one goes to see and talk about what’s happening “but sometimes, unwanted replies make it hard to have meaningful conversations”.
Twitter is also coming up with a new layout for replies and more accessible retweets with comments which the company says will make it easier to read all conversations around a particular tweet.
