The new features of Twitter are still in the early stages and the team at Twitter is looking for feedback. Know what you are going to get in the new update…
Twitter is working on a tweet reaction picker that will allow users to react with a selection of emoji. Tweet reactions have been under testing for some time now and will work like Facebook’s emoji reactions. At the moment it is not clear when this feature will be rolled out to the public. Apart from this, Twitter is also testing new privacy features that will keep you away from unwanted people and posts. These features are still in the early stages and the team on Twitter is looking for feedback.
Starting with the tweet reactions, reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) shared a screenshot on Twitter, showing a reaction picker with various emojis to choose from. There are five emoji shows at once and choosing one will reveal what it represents. Wong also shared five reactions last month, in which users will be able to include ‘like,’ ‘cheer,’ ‘hmm,’ ‘sad,’ and ‘haha’, represented by their respective animated emoji. The emoji for the ‘hmm’ and ‘haha’ reactions are the ones users will be familiar with, but the other three are just ‘heart’ suggesting they are placeholders for now.
Users will get new privacy controls
Earlier this month, Wong noticed that Twitter was testing a Tweet Reaction Summary feature that would show the total number of reactions to a tweet before different reactions. In addition, Dominic Camozzi, a privacy engineer on Twitter, posted a series of tweets on June 15 talking about new privacy features the social media giant is working on. This feature allows users to ‘annotate themselves’ from a tweet where they have been mentioned directly.
The Unmention Yourself option, seen on a Tweet from Camoji, is present in the three dot menu next to a Tweet that allows users to untag themselves from a Tweet or conversation and it will remove the link to their profile from that Tweet.
be able to stop yourself from mashing
Apart from this, another feature shared by Camozzi shows a special notification that shows up when someone doesn’t directly tag or mention you. If you don’t ‘mention yourself’, the person who posted the Tweet will not be able to mention you again. There is also a feature that will prevent some or all accounts from mentioning you for one day, three days or seven days.
