According to the report generated by @a_dsgnr, Twitter is planning on expanding the coverage of the feature it launched last year, the reply limit feature which enables the user to limit the replies on the tweet posted. Twitter revealed 3 conceptual features it is planning to launch to ensure utmost user privacy and to provide the user with custody of their tweets. The feature includes the ‘Trusted friends’ option which will let the user create a different personalized timeline for their friends or close members on Twitter.
This feature as per the user’s desire will only show the tweet posted by them to a small fragment of people. To understand this feature better you can think of the close friend feature that we come across on Instagram which allows the user to share stories with close friends or the people close to them. Likewise, the Twitter Trusted friend feature will make a tweet noticeable to only that segment of friends you consider close. The user before posting will have to choose from whether to share it with everyone or with trusted friends and unlike Instagram, the user will be able to post the tweet on the timeline.
The other feature Twitter mentioned was Facets. This feature sounds like a bonus for both celebrities and followers. Celebrities will be able to make different profiles so that they can manage the posts on their profiles, some celebrities have followers because they admire their work, however some like their lifestyle and other details. Via this feature, the followers will have an option to choose from what they want to see. This way the unwanted content will not offend the user or the image of the celebrity.
The last feature that was spoken of was Reply Language Prompts, this feature allows the user to list the words or phrases they do not wish to see in their comments and if the follower while posting a comment uses those phrases an alert will be pardoned to warn the follower against those violating phrases. These features are still abstract and Twitter will make a move after referring to the feedback.
