Twitter is working on a new feature that will allow users to determine the mood of a conversation before joining it. The social media platform has confirmed that it is testing a new prompts feature on Android and iOS apps. Twitter had said it would test a feature like this in a previous announcement, as we reported last month.
The new ‘prompts’ feature will alert users to the possibility of engaging in a conversation that may heat up. This will allow users to stay away from certain conversations on the social media platform. However, it is not clear what criteria will be used by Twitter to determine the “vibe” of a conversation. Twitter did not specify details on when a conversation will be marked as “fiery.”
The new prompt will be visible under some tweets on the platform. This will allow users to determine whether they want to enter the conversation or not, before diving into the responses. Twitter confirmed the same through its official support id. “We’re testing prompts on Android and iOS that alert you if the conversation you’re about to enter could get hot or intense,” Twitter said.
Twitter also confirmed that it can take into account the subject of the tweet and the relationship between the author of the tweet and the answering machine, while displaying the prompt. The company has yet to confirm exactly when we can expect the rollout of the new feature to take place.
Additionally, Twitter recently announced that it is working on making certain changes that will prevent tweets from disappearing when read.
The problem reported by many users on Twitter is that tweets disappeared while reading them. The timeline is said to refresh, causing the tweets to disappear.
Twitter has announced plans to roll out updates to address this issue over the next two months. “We know it’s a frustrating experience so we’re working to change it,” Twitter said, commenting on the issue.
