Twitter is an insane place, people gather up to share their respective views in just 140 characters. The place has given birth to many acronyms that the world has never heard before. Sometimes, someone says something so ridiculously quirky thing that other people start following/replying/sharing that ‘Tweet’ and this is how a thread gets formed.
Now, to make the ‘Twitter thread’ thing more fun, Twitter is testing a new feature that will make it easier for users to find out who started a thread. Twitter is crossing its fingers that the feature will make it easier to discern accounts that act as the person who started a thread. This will bring transparency in the system which will surely enrich the user experience.
Twitter's director of product management Sara Haider said: "Twitter's purpose is to serve the public conversation. As part of this work, we're exploring adding more context to discussions by highlighting relevant replies – like those from the original Tweeter."
For now the social media company’s new beta app has been embedded with this feature and the company is asking users to experience the “original tweeter” feature and tell their honest reviews so that they can proceed with what they started. They are also asking people to invite others and use this feature within the standalone app.
The first beta is throwing all its efforts on testing a design for the manner in which conversation threads work on Twitter. There are some new elements like a distinct colour scheme and visual cues are under scrutiny right now and will be released soon after the testing is done.
