Twitter To Experiment with Limitations in Replies Section


Consumer Electronics Show 2020 is going on and tech-giants are coming up with their future devices and improvements. Twitter’s director has made a new announcement at CES to combat online abuses on the Tweet shared by the users. They are experimenting with a new limit feature in the replies section.

The popular micro-blogging platform to add a new ‘conversation participants’ feature where a new tweet is composed. There will be four different options provided for the users- Global, Group, Panel, and Statement. Users can select any of these options to receive the replies on their tweets.

If we talk more about these four different options, then you might have noticed that the global feature is for the public. By selecting this option, anyone can reply to your tweet. Group feature will let the users’ followers and mentions reply to their tweets.

While the Panel option will let those people reply to your tweets where you have mentioned specifically on the platform. The final Statement option will disable twitter replies completely. Nobody can reply to your tweets or replies once you select the Statement option.

Whenever we explore Twitter, we saw hundreds and thousands of replies on a tweet shared by a person. If you check the tweet of a celebrity, then the number of replies are in millions or even more. This can be used as it is, however, if you want to limit the number of comments for specific persons only, you will be able to do so once the new feature goes public.

Apart from this, Twitter is also working on a new conversation view window that lets you view a specific conversation on a new window. This feature will open up a new window just like Apple’s 3D touch feature. You can easily sort through different replies and tweets and conversations using this new window that will be introduced very shortly by the user.

Additionally, the new Twitter update will bring a lot of other improvements to the app which will be made available together with the next major update.
