Twitter introduces new features for Direct Messages and privacy


Twitter has offered many new features to its users since it was acquired by Elon Musk. The social media platform is currently working on a new feature for Direct Message. According to this feature, Twitter users will react with more emojis on Direct Message. So, what are the details for innovation? Let's take a look at the details of the news together.


Expanded emoji reactions for Twitter Direct Message are coming!

Twitter interface designer Andrea Conway showed the new tested feature of the platform with the sharing she shared from her social media account yesterday. According to this feature, emoji response options for Twitter Direct Messages are increasing.

The option to react with emoji for Twitter Direct Messages arrived on the platform a long time ago. But in this feature, there are only six emoji, such as the most used smiley, sad face and red heart.

According to the image shared by Andrea Conway, all of them can be used to react with emoji for Twitter Direct Message. In this way, users of the social media platform will be able to express themselves better in the face of messages.

Twitter thinks that there will be an increase in interaction among users thanks to the new feature it is testing. In addition, users will be able to communicate with each other in a more practical way. This feature has progressed in the same way for WhatsApp and other social media giant Instagram. The two platforms, which first allowed to react with certain emojis, later increased these options.


On the other hand, Elon Musk recently announced that they have introduced a new feature that shows how much interaction tweets get. For this innovation, which has been in use for a while, social media analyst Matt Navara shared that they are working on a new privacy setting to hide the number of views of tweets today. Accordingly, events such as displaying tweets will depend on the account owner's preference.

Elon Musk explained that they brought the feature that shows the number of views of tweets to prove that users spend a lot of time on the platform, but still do not interact. In addition, the famous businessman previously stated that many new features will come to the platform as of February and there will be changes in the design.
