Talking About Twitter’s Latest Updates With The Social Media Examiner
Once again, I was invited to appear on Social Media Examiner’s Social Media Marketing Talk Show. It’s a blast to be a guest on their live programme and discuss topics like the newest Twitter developments.
These Ten Upcoming Twitter Changes Are Exciting
Your Twitter account might already have access to some of these options. More will follow. This is the information you require:
.An In-Studio Conversation Analysis Instrument (Available Now)
The coolest new feature, though, is Conversation Insights, a tool introduced to the Media Studio’s Publisher Insights tab. This is great news for authors since it will help you discover tweets you may have missed, beyond just mention and hashtags. By doing so, you may monitor for any mentions of your company. The added bonus is that it will assist you in providing exceptional customer service.
2. Twitter Topic Following (Available Now)
On my most recent appearance on the Social Media Examiner podcast, I discussed this brand-new function…. Nevertheless, did you happen to notice something? User access has been granted at long last! Doing so will allow you to keep tabs on any number of potential interests of yours. Now, there are more than 300 different categories covering everything from sports to video games to movies.
3. Distancing oneself from a discussion (Coming in 2020)
Having your Twitter alerts blown up because you were accidentally tagged in a conversation you didn’t start is really annoying. Indeed, you can silence the speaker, but sometimes that’s not enough.
4. Prevent Retweeting of Certain Tweets (Coming in 2020)
Most of the time, retweeting is a fantastic idea. It’s the best method to have your tweets seen by more people, and let’s face it: who doesn’t want that? But, there are scenarios in which you likely would rather not have a tweet retweeted.
5. Do not let anyone talk about you unless they have your blessing (Coming in 2020)
One of the newest Twitter features which will greatly improve users sense of security is this. By disabling @mentions, you may prevent potentially harmful online interactions, such as cyberbullying and harassment. This allows you to swiftly and easily remove any unfavourable mentions if an online troll should suddenly appear.
6. Delete a Specified Reference from a Discussion 6. (Coming in 2020)
One of Twitter’s upcoming features is the option to unfollow a person from a conversation thread. If you mistakenly tag someone in a tweet or if someone you tagged decides they no longer want to be part of the conversation, you may quickly untag them without losing the thread.
7. Tweet about a certain topic, person, or hashtag (Coming in 2020)
Depending on your preferences, a Facebook status update might be seen by everyone, only your friends, or an exclusive group. This has obviously never been done before on Twitter. Either everyone or nobody might see your tweets. No middle ground exists. But with one of Twitter’s upcoming updates, that’s all about to change.
With a targeted hashtag, hobby, or circle of friends, you may easily broadcast your tweet to appropriate people. You’ll be able to have more meaningful, specific talks, and it may even provide you some privacy you wouldn’t have otherwise.
8. Eighth, it’s possible to label robots as such.
The number of automated accounts on Twitter is large. Some of them are helpful and share informational tweets, but this is not true of everyone. And one of Twitter’s new features can help you tell the difference between a bot and a human-run account.
Twitter already indicates verified accounts with a checkmark, so adding another checkmark to identify bots might lead to some confusion. When this function becomes live, we need to be able to distinguish between these two ticks.
On the one hand, I think this may be good for Twitter as a whole since it encourages openness. Some bot accounts include the term “Bot” in their user names, but having the checkmark would settle the debate once and for all.
9. The ability to respond to direct messages using emoji (in Testing)
Is Twitter trying to emulate Facebook? Using emojis as responses in private chats is presently being tested. It’s a little change, but I hope it’ll help you save time and show appreciation for direct messages by eliminating the need to respond in writing. Those that get a lot of direct messages will find this quite helpful.
10 Use Several Twitter Accounts When Responding (in Testing)
This is fantastic news for social media managers. The option to move between Twitter accounts within responses is another new feature that is presently under development. It’s simple to switch accounts if you start composing a reply from the wrong one and then discover your mistake midway through. Of course, you can do this with TweetDeck already. It would appear that Twitter is taking some cues from this source.
