News arrives on Twitter. Yesterday, the technology company announced a new function which aims to improve the user experience within the social network. The news focuses on the threads, which have grown in popularity over the past few months and which at first glance may seem like a messy system.
There are many users who recure this option to explain long stories or news that do not fit into a simple tweet. For that reason, according to Engadget, the platform has decided to modernize this tool, creating levels in the conversation. In this way, you will see three types of labels - "author", "mention" and "follow" - so that the users participate more in the conversations and these are easier to follow.

However, users still can not celebrate the launch of this function, since, at the moment, it is in the testing phase. So there is a possibility that the tool stays in this phase and never sees the light. Even so, this is further evidence that Twitter is committed to helping users make sense of the threads.
Months ago, the social network tested the "original tweeter" tag, in order to clarify who started a thread and reduce spam. Last month, software engineer Jane Manchun Wong discovered the "subscribe to the conversation" button that would allow users to follow a thread without liking or responding These new labels seem to be an evolution of both characteristics.
While this could be a useful way to prevent spam and add some clarity to mixed threads, users have already expressed concern, since These labels may seem distracting and even unnecessary. What is clear is that Twitter has gotten to work in order to offer the members of its platform new features.
