Twitter New Tweet Reply Control Feature

In August 2020, Twitter would further introduce the ability to restrict who gets to reply to the tweets. In other to do this, the users would get to tap the globe icon right next to “everyone that can reply” and then manually adjust who would get followed to respond to the tweet. The only issue there was that users would get to make this decision before publishing their tweets.

That is a problem because once the tweet is published, it would be possible for someone to begin replying to all whose unwanted replies were not anticipated ahead of time. The feature update changes by allowing the users to adjust who is allowed to reply to published a tweet. The feature is added to the option to mute the conversation.

Twitter New Feature Accessibility

The feature is further rolling out to all Twitter users across the world and it would be accessible via desktop, iOS, and Android. This new feature is discovered by tapping the triple-dot menu button that is located at the top right corner of a tweet that is published. The “Change that can reply” option remains the first item that is in the menu that would open.

This new option would be available days after twitter showed off different concepts that are related to users’ privacy, security, and control over conversations. Some amount of ideas none of which are actually featured at the moment have been revealed, and it includes things that would allow users to control whether they show up in search, make it easier to tweet from other accounts, and more.
