Twitter has begun testing chat tree support in the experimental Twttr app, which is used to test new features before they are officially introduced to the main service. This message and response format seems to have been inspired by Reddit.
The breakthrough was discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, known for reverse engineering various applications and social networks to discover new features and functionality. As you can see below, the news also makes it easier to track responses on the microblogging service:
With this new design, tweets selected with the mouse will be highlighted and the user will be able to see the answers better. For the tweet that started the conversation, a small microphone icon will appear to indicate this.
Users with inactive accounts have already been notified
Twitter has confirmed that what Wong discovered is part of the plan to introduce some features of Twttr on Twitter, but that should only happen in 2020. However, not all of the new features discovered by her will be available initially – only the "best parts". That is, the talk trees, but not necessarily the other tweaks.
Users interested in testing the Twttr experimental application should complete an “application form” by visiting this link. Please note that not all users who fill out this form will be accepted.
