Twitter Says Doesn’t Have Edit Button in Its Top Priorities, Support for Apple’s Live Photos Upcoming


Twitter Product Lead Kayvon Beykpour at a press occasion in San Francisco, California, revealed that the anticipated edit button isn’t most likely to be readily available anytime quickly on the platform.

Apart from specifying the advancement around the edit function and upcoming Live Photos support, Twitter used its press occasion in San Francisco to detail the significant function it’s currently developing for the users. According to a report by The Verge, the business revealed that it would soon permit users to follow topics such as sports, celebrities, and TV programs to name a few to see a variety of tweets based upon their selections– not the original timeline. The feature would work simply as how users are allowed on the platform to follow other user accounts.

Twitter is likewise stated to make it possible for users to mute particular subjects to temporarily conceal them from their feed. Even more, it is evaluating a method to let users establish different lists within the app to follow particular interests. The company likewise reportedly verified that it is dealing with searchable direct messages, which was spotted recently.
