Twitter is going to make news easier to discover, changes also coming to moments and search

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Twitter shared in a blog post today that it's working on changes to its content discovery features, as well as push notifications for events and news stories the platform identifies as likely to be interesting to you. Most of the changes lack firm release dates, rolling out "in the coming weeks" and months.

Moments will soon scroll vertically instead of horizontally to match the Twitter timeline — Twitter said that in its tests, a vertical layout led to more user engagement.

Twitter now uses its own emoji on Android

Monday, May 21st, 2018

Twitter's Android app looks a little different for many today: the platform now uses its own "Twemoji" emoji set rather than system emoji. The update will have the most effect for users on older Android versions, which lack some newer emoji.

A number of emoji don't display properly on versions of Android preceding Oreo, which is still only available on a small fraction of devices. Unsupported emoji show up as unsightly placeholder boxes.

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

In a move that is likely to spell the end for a number of third-party Twitter clients, the social platform has shared pricing for its overhauled APIs. As expected, it's not cheap. Twitter delayed plans to deprecate the current APIs last month, but a new date has now been set for August 16th.

Developers of third-party Twitter apps will be required to sign up for the costly Premium or Enterprise plans to use the Account Activity APIs, likely pricing many of them out.

Twitter is testing encrypted ‘secret conversations’

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

It appears that Twitter is working on a 'Secret conversation' feature that offers that would allow users to send encrypted messages to each other. This would bring Twitter in line with other messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram that already offer message encryption, and in the current privacy climate, it would surely be a popular move.

The unreleased secret conversation option was discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, who posted screenshots on Twitter soon after.

Why you should change your Twitter and GitHub passwords now

Friday, May 4th, 2018

It’s time to update your Twitter and GitHub passwords. Both services have confirmed that usernames and passwords were saved unmasked in plain text in internal logs. This is not a security breach, but users are advised to create a new password as a precautionary measure.

When you create an account for an online service, your login credentials should be masked using a process called hashing so that no one — not even employees at that service — can see your password.

Twitter is testing a bottom navigation bar in its app

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

Phones are big these days, and that can make UI elements at the top of your screen hard to reach. Thus, apps are increasingly going for the bottom navigation tabs. Even some Google apps are all over the bottom tabs. Now, Twitter appears to be testing a bottom nav UI. We've seen several reports, but it seems there's no way to trigger the UI yourself.

The navigation items in this new version of Twitter appear to have the same setup as the ubiquitous top bar.
