Twitter is currently praising its features with repeated responses in response to negative feedback from users about the design, the company announced on Thursday.
“We asked, and you let us know that this layout was not, as it was more difficult to read and participate in conversations,” Twitter said. a thread announces the change.
The company’s prototype app Twttr, its test site for experimenting with new designs like threaded answers, will also go dark while working on “new call features.” Anyone currently using the app is losing access and should switch to the main Twitter app, it warned.
Twitter started rolling out threaded answers back in May on iOS and the web to help create conversations easier to participate in that users no longer have to navigate a mess of branching responses, something even Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has struggled with. This new system apparently did not turn out much better, as Twitter said that users still found it difficult to follow conversations, partly because the function of the design did not include enough context of who they were talking to.
Proceeding, On Twitter it is working to address this feedback by adding more context to layout for answers and expand the platform range of conversation settings to give users more control. Twitter did not see when users can expect to see something of the new design ventures reflected on their timelines and did not immediately respond to Gizmodo’s request for comment on the case. In Thursday’s thread, Twitter promised that it would be “More to come soon.”
“When we build new features, especially those that are essential to the Twitter experience, we often try new things,” the company tweeted. “Some will send and others will not. While testing outdoors, the feedback helps us understand what works and what doesn’t. ”
An important question though: Want Twitter is divisive new Instagram stories-like traits get the same “back to the drawing board” treatment in a few months? Ask for a friend.
