These days threaded conversations are a popular feature on many sites. Back in the day, especially with text messages and comments, each post would get its own space, and usually, that was a problem because it takes away the context and can be confusing. Well, this was still part of Twitter’s design, at least until now that is.
A tweet by Twitter’s Sara Haider suggests that the company is testing out threaded replies in tweets. Haider claims that this will make replies feel more like conversations, which is a better way to do it since it feels more personal and less like a comment. This should help to avoid confusion for users.
As well as testing out the threaded replies feature, Haider also revealed that Twitter was also testing online status indicators. This would let users know whether or not another user is online at the moment. Online status indicators aren’t new, but for some reason companies like Instagram and now Twitter are only now implementing or testing them out. Better late than never.
These features are still early in development, so what you see now might not be the final version. These changes should be great for Twitter users.
