We have been hearing a lot about Twitter’s upcoming controversial feature that lets users hide replies within the thread. Today, Twitter has officially released an update allowing users to hide replies in the thread for the users of the United States.
The Hide Replies feature was in the testing phase for the users of Canada which is now made available for the people of the United States and Japan. Twitter is becoming a more popular platform where people can interact with each other or can argue on a tweet on a particular issue.
If the user doesn’t want bullies to reply in the Tweet, he can simply block it out by using this Hide Replies feature. The mute feature was available until now for the users to mute particular words; however, Twitter’s developers have made this feature more powerful that lets users hide replies from Twitter handle directly.
If you comment on a Tweet, you will be able to decide which people can view your comment. Yes, you will have the ability to select the users to view and interact with your reply by using this feature.
To make use of this Hide Replies feature, you just need to click on to the right-hand menu of a Tweet. This will brings up a menu of a number of options which includes a new option with “Hide Reply.” Once you select this option, the reply of yours will be hidden from other users. This means other users will not be able to view the reply of yours to that Tweet. However, users can still view the reply by unhiding the Tweet using the Unhide feature.
There is an icon present on the tweet besides a tweet. The same feature was announced by Twitter in the January month which was started testing in the July month. This Hide Replies feature is now rolling out to the people of certain countries including Canada, the United States and Japan.
Twitter will roll out the same Hide Reply feature to more countries in the coming days. However, they have not disclosed anything about the same. We will get to see more updates on this feature in the coming days.
