Twitter adds ‘direct reply count’; will reorder replies based on ‘importance’

News Hour:

Twitter has announced that the social networking company will now organise the replies to a tweet in such a way that users will get to see the “best content” first, bringing its mobile apps in line with the desktop. The company added that people may see replies in different order based of various factors.The ranking of the replies within conversations depends on the factors like whether you follow the person who has replied within a conversation and whether the reply is coming from the person who initiated the conversation.

“You may notice that some replies in a conversation are not shown in chronological order. Replies are grouped by sub-conversations because we strive to show you the best content first, and what we think you’d be most interested in,” Twitter said in its post.

Twitter is adding another feature as well. Just like users are already able to see likes and retweets for any particular tweet, with the help of the reply count, they will be able to see how many people have taken part in a particular conversation. Users will be able to see the reply count next to the reply icon, indicating the total number of replies the original tweet has received. Twitter has clarified that this number does not indicate the total number of replies in the entire conversation.

The new features will be available in Twitter apps for both Android and iOS.

Recently, the Twitter account of Jack Dorsey, the company’s CEO and co-founder, was briefly suspended due to an “an internal mistake,” as per Dorsey.
