Twitter is considering new ways to share tweets with specific groups of people. The company showed off two concepts for new features that allow users to target tweets to specific target kidollarses without having to change accounts or privacy settings.
According to the first, users will be able to define “trusted friends” within their accounts. Thus, the tweetollarser they posted will only be visible to users in this list. This feature adopts the “close friends” feature that Instagram uses for its stories. The current version of Twitter includes features such as being able to choose who can reply to posts.
Twitter also offers a feature that reflects different personalities of people from the same account. For example, a user might have a personal ID for friends and family in addition to a professional ID where they tweet about work-related topics. According to the images, users can also have the right to make any person public or private. In this context, new followers will be able to choose from which “direction” they want to see the tweets.
Courter recently demonstrated a concept for the reply filter, which allows users to select specific words or phrases that they “prefer not to see”. In this way, another user who responds to or mentions the user will learn that when they use one of these words or expressions, the words are against that person’s preference.
Also According to the images shared by Courter, the feature will not prevent anyone from tweeting using offensive words, but will make it less visible to the person on the receiving end. The idea is similar to other anti-bullying impulses Twitter has used in the past, but goes a step further, as each user can set their own conversation “boundaries”.
All these features are still only in the concept stage, so there is no definite information on whether they will be available for use or not. However, the company is looking for feedback on designs so that it can inform future tools that Twitter has decided to create. At least it sheds light on how Twitter thinks about personality.
