Twitter now enables users to hide replies on your tweets.

The option is now rolling out globally for users on iOS, Android, Twitter Lite and Twitter on the web.

Twitter is also ‘experimenting’ with an option to let users schedule tweets.

Twitter is finally bringing some anticipated changes to its micro-blogging platform. The first new feature making its way to the platform is the ability to hide replies on a tweet. The option was rumoured to hit the platform much earlier, but it is finally rolling out now globally. As the name suggests, the option enables hiding replies on a tweet and is aimed at giving users more control over their conversations. In addition, the social media platform is also rolling out the option to schedule tweets for its users on the web app. This is a highly requested feature that was available for Tweetdeck users. 

The hide replies option works for everyone and anyone who replies to your tweets can also hide the replies that they receive on their replies. “Here’s how it works. Anyone can choose to hide replies to their Tweets. Everyone can see and engage with hidden replies by tapping the grey icon that will appear on the Tweets. This way, you have more control over the conversations you start, but people can still see the entire conversation,” explains Twitter in a blog post. The option is now available for Twitter users on iOS, Android, Twitter Lite and for Twitter on the web. 

As for the option to schedule posts on Twitter, the option is being rolled out for users on the web. However, the feature seems to be currently available for limited users since the company says it is currently ‘experimenting’ with it. From the small video demo posted on Twitter, those accounts who get the scheduling option will be able to use the feature from the three-dot menu on the bottom bar. It will prompt users to set their desired date and time and as mentioned earlier, it is available only for Twitter users on the web.
