I’m all for positive change but Twitter Wyd?
Twitter today announced its new Direct Messages feature. It’s probably not what you think – Twitter is bringing Whatsapp-ian features to its “messages” tab making the Social network more IM than it used to be.
Starting from your next upgrade, you will be able to see when your messages have been read and when your recipient is typing... so say goodbye to those “I’m just seeing this” texts.
Along with this, you will be able to preview website links sent or received during your conversations.
New! Direct Messages are more dynamic than ever with read receipts, typing indicators, and web link previews. pic.twitter.com/VEU92V5Gqj— Twitter (@twitter) September 8, 2016
DO THESE CHANGES APPLY ONLY TO GROUP MESSAGES?
We hope so.
While we are all waiting for an “edit tweet” button, twitter is creating more ways to discourage those brave DM plunges.
