Twitter tests new app

Within a few weeks, Twitter will introduce a standalone app for testing its new features.

What will be new in Twitter’s beta app?

  • A new system to sort tweets. Replies will be shown not as equal tweets but as branches of the conversation.
  • Indented and color-coded replies. The color will depend on who has written the reply: the original poster of the tweet, the person you follow, or the person you don’t follow.
  • A ranked order of replies. Replies from your friends will be moved to the top.
  • A new look of “like”, “retweet”, and other engagement buttons. The icons won’t disappear completely but will be seen only if you tap on a specific post.

A couple thousand people will access the beta test.
