Micro blogging platform twitter has rolled out it new reply control feature for all users. The feature started rolling out the last few months, but it was only for the lucky few. This is because it was still under testing. But for now, it’s rolling out to everyone.
Starting today, everyone will be able to use these settings so unwanted replies don’t get in the way of meaningful conversations,” the company said.
HOW IT WORKS
With this new feature, when you tweet you will see a new reply control setting just above the attachment’s sections. From there you can choose let everyone reply to your tweet, which is the default setting, or toggle the new additional options; only people you follow, or only people you mention.
All tweets with reply controls will be indicated and those who have no ability to reply will see a grayed out reply icon. For filtered out Twitter users, they will still able to view, Retweet, Retweet with Comment, share, and like the Tweets.
Reply controls is rolling out on all platforms, including mobile (Android and iOS), and on desktop via twitter.com.
