Twitter appears to be working on a slew of new features that will undoubtedly improve the platform’s user experience. As per a report the microblogging website is working on bringing the ability to add both pictures and videos in a single tweet. Statuses, Awards, and the pronouns page are among the features under development.
According to a new report by 9to5Google, a new update to Twitter for Android, the company is working on a few new features. Reportedly microblogging is likely to bring features such as Statuses, Awards, and the pronouns page. The Status feature will be allowing users to add status to their tweets and display it on their profile. While the Awards feature will allow a tweet with an award and that too will have a dedicated button allowing users to award a tweet. Moreover, the tweet will also display how many awards it has won. Discover buttons were also spotted which are said to be for finding profiles and tweets.
As we said earlier Twitter for Android is working on a slew of new features, including the ability to add images and videos in a single tweet. Tweets with media can only contain a gallery of up to four photos or a single video right now. In addition to this, the social media platform seems to be shaking things up by allowing users to mix media in their tweets, allowing them to include up to four pieces of media, which can be photos or videos. Another feature that Twitter is said to be working on is a pronouns page. Furthermore, the microblogging platform is also rumoured to be working on a feature that allows users to edit their posts. In a series of leaked images, the upcoming feature was spotted. A developer and leakster alex193a discovered that Twitter is already working on adding the ability to edit tweets on Twitter Web. He discovered some concrete evidence of the ability to edit tweets right within the tweet options, according to his tweet: after tapping “Edit tweet,” the user can make changes by pressing “Update.” The Edit Tweet option can be found beside the date of a tweet on the timeline or added to the side menu of a tweet, as shown in the screenshot. It’s possible that the text is clickable, leading to the tweet’s ‘Edit History.’ At the moment, there appears to be no way to read or edit history, but this may change in the future. Aside from that, the tipster claims that tweets will only be editable for an hour after they are published.
Moreover, the same source also showed off the Edit History. This feature has yet to be officially announced by Twitter.
According to a recent report, Twitter is testing a new feature called Twitter Circle, which allows users to select a smaller group of 150 people with whom to share their tweets.
