Twitter's colorful speech bubbles and online status indicator rolling out to many users soon
The first time we caught wind of the new changes was courtesy of Sara Haider, Twitter's Director of Product Management, who shared screenshots the new functionalities a couple of months ago. Those were later retweeted by Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey, so they've received the highest-possible seal of approval.
hey Twitter. we've been playing with some rough features to make it feel more conversational here. presence and reply threading. still early and iterating on these ideas. thoughts? pic.twitter.com/3U3NvpHWPy— sara haider @ CES (@pandemona) August 31, 2018
As mentioned above, the features will be rolled out to beta users, and while anyone will be able to opt in, just a couple of thousand approved beta users will actually receive the experimental features.
Provided that the beta tests prove to be successful among beta users, it wouldn't be surprising to see the changes roll out to just about any Twitter user out there. However, editing your tweets still seems to be out of the question.
What do you think about the experimental features? Like them or hate them? Tell us!
