Twitter revealed that it is working on Hide Reply feature in late February. Everyone is anxiously waiting for the feature and today the company has announced that this feature will be launched in June. The company termed this feature as an experiment, which clearly shows that it can be changed according to the feedback of users.
This upcoming Twitter Hide reply Feature was spotted by Jane Manchun Wong, who revealed that soon users will be able to hide replies to their tweets. Upon hiding the replies, not just you won’t be able to see it but other people who were following your conversation will also not be able to see them.
This feature will encourage people to give their opinions in a better way without using any abusive content. Just like Facebook gives users control over their post and they can edit or delete them whenever they want.
Hide Tweet will be accessible in the menu, and it will also let you see all the tweets that you had hidden at some point in your life, later on. However, it should be kept in mind that, if you choose to hide tweet feature, it doesn’t mean that all the replies will disappear. If you or other people following your comments want to see these replied, they will just need to click a button “show more replies” to view them.
This feature was later on confirmed by Twitter senior product manager Michelle Yasmeen Haq, who said that in upcoming months this feature will be publically tested.
