Twitter decides to end testing the threaded response feature

Twitter has been testing the threaded response feature for some time, which aims to make responses easier to read and follow, but on Thursday, it said it had finished testing the feature based on the response it got from users.

“We asked and you answered that this form of responses is not appropriate, because it makes it difficult to read, and join the conversations,” Twitter said in a tweet posted on Thursday. He added, “So we stopped this coordination to work on other ways to improve conversations on Twitter.”

In a subsequent tweet, the site said: The interconnected responses made it difficult for users to read the conversations and join them, and that users wanted to know precisely who they were speaking to.

In addition to announcing the termination of the threaded response feature testing, the site announced the termination of its experimental application called twttr, which was designed to test many features, including the threaded responses feature.

In another tweet, the site said, “We have now decided to terminate the twttr application in order to be able to work on new tests that improve the conversation experience on Twitter.” A spokesman for Twitter said: The current twttr users will not be able at the present time to use the application, but Twitter is looking at the next possible steps for the application, in light of developing future plans to test new products.

Twitter had first talked about testing the threaded responses feature in August 2018, then began testing it with the twttr app in March 2019, then added it to the iOS app in January, then modified the way to display Linked tweets from some iOS and web users this past May. But it seems that the new feature hasn’t caught up with many Twitter users.

With regard to the features that the site is considering adding, an official at Twitter revealed last November that it was studying the possibility of adding the dislike button, or the ability to passively vote for tweets that users did not like, similar to popular sites, such as: Reddit.
