Twitter tests a new “Status” feature

These days some users of theApps on Twitter they began to display one new “Status” function, which allows them to assign a pre-filled label to a tweet. “For a limited time, we are testing a feature that allows you to add a status topic from a predetermined list to your Tweets to provide better context for your followers.” So a spokesperson for the platform told TechCrunch. “So if you’re about to throw a hot thread, share your thoughts in the shower, or have a bad Monday, your Tweets can better convey what you’re doing.” But let’s try to understand in more detail what it is.

Twitter: App tests a new option for “Status”

Since the Twitter App launched the new “Status” option, many users have shared tweets explaining the function. Apparently, the so-called “states” were designed for replace titles and emojis that users use at the beginning of their tweets. The “Spoiler Alert” status, for example, includes a warning sign emoji. While the “Vacation mode” is accompanied by the emoji of a palm tree – which goes well with the 40 ° degrees of these days in July -. And if you’re really wondering what the option is for, here’s the answer: give information about the user’s statusmaking him save fonts for the tweet.

As far as we know, the Twitter App has been working on the feature for a while. Some time ago Jane Manchun Wong spotted it in an application code string. On the other hand, the roots of the “Status” are a little smile. Over a decade ago Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, pointed out that the platform was originally conceived as a “mobile status update service” designed to allow people to share what they were doing at any time. Then, over the years, Stone himself realized that Twitter was becoming a dense web of information, and nothing more. But now the new function seems to bring back the idea of ​​the co-founder.

However, for the moment it is not clear when the “Status” will be made available globally. But one thing is certain: this novelty is just one of the many that the App has in store for us.
