Twitter is testing a brand new feature that lets you share short voice recordings in your Tweets, and it looks like this will be a successful thing, positioning the social network well for the voice first future. And Liz Phair has shown us how it is done.#technology #tech #SocialMedia #Twitter
Twitter is already the go-to platform for breaking news in the U.S. and often around the world.

Twitter today announced that it has started testing new conversation settings that were first outlined earlier this year at CES.#technology #tech #internet #messaging #Twitter

Twitter has started testing a new threaded conversation layout that’s meant to make it more obvious who’s talking to whom. Based on the GIF posted by the Twitter Support account, the new layout makes use of lines and indentations to clearly indicate that a reply is meant for a specific tweet. As TechCrunch notes, it looks particularly useful for longer threads where participants go back-and-forth and where people post responses to several separate tweets.#technology #tech #SocialMedia #Twitter
Apparently, one reason Taiwan’s response to Covid-19 was so early was that Taiwan CDC Deputy Director Luo Yi-jun stumbled upon the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission’s 30 December notices on notorious online forum PTT in the early hours of 31 December.PTT ist ein telnet-basierter Online-Textchat, der 1995 von zwei Studenten ins Leben gerufen wurde und bis heute als BBS von Freiwilligen betrieben wird.
Twitter is rolling out a new feature that makes it easier to thread multiple tweets together. With this change, you can now link tweets together while you compose them.The way you do this seems more complicated than just @replying to your own previous tweet. And there will still be people who won't use it (naming no Piers Morgans). And it might take a while for third-party apps to decide whether to implement it.
The company announced the new feature this afternoon. When you’re composing a new tweet, you can now slide up to view your previous tweets, including your most recent post as well as older ones. Once you pick an older tweet, you’ll see a “Continue thread” button.
