Twitter shares its daily user count for the first time in Q4 results

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Twitter is a publicly-traded company, and as such, its quarterly earnings reports always include data about the platform — including the amount of active users. The company has historically never revealed how many active daily users Twitter has, only the amount of users who log in (at least) once a month. In its Q4 earnings report, Twitter has revealed how many people log into the platform daily, among other information.

According to the report, Twitter has 126 million daily users.

Guests can now join live Periscope broadcasts

Monday, February 4th, 2019

In case you've forgotten about it, Periscope is Twitter's somewhat-unpopular streaming platform designed for use on iOS and Android devices. There haven't been any major feature additions in well over a year, but that changes today. Periscope users can now invite guests onto their streams, similar to what Instagram added in 2017.

Starting today, broadcasters can go live with guests and invite anyone to join. When guests request to join a stream, a button appears on the broadcaster's phone.

Twitter lets you know when the original poster replies to a thread

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

In lengthy and popular Twitter threads, it can be useful to identify when the person who initially started the conversation replies to someone. Twitter seems to be testing a new feature in its Android app that lets you quickly identify just that.

Thanks to a badge appearing next to their name, it's now going to be easier to spot when the original tweeter replies to a thread they started. As you can see in the comparison screenshots below, this addition is subtle, but it comes in handy when scrolling through long conversations.

Whoops: Twitter accidentally exposed protected tweets for some Android users over the last four years

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Just earlier today, Twitter admitted to a bit of an accident. Since November 2014, if you had your account's tweets set as protected, and you used the first-party Twitter Android app, changing specific details like your associated email address may have inadvertently disabled the setting.

Some users that were affected by this problem have been notified, and the associated setting has been returned to its expected, disabled state. However, Twitter can't be sure that it has informed everyone who may have been affected, hence the broader announcement (and our coverage).

Twitter’s chronological timeline rolls out to Android app

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Twitter announced last year that it was bringing back the fully chronological timeline. It didn't launch the feature right away, and even when it did, iOS got it first. Oh well, such is life (and you should be used to it by now). Today is the big day for Android, though. Head to your Twitter app and enjoy the glory of a chronological timeline.

The toggle for this feature is up at the top of the app—the sparkles.

Twitter for Android gets around to adding new video controls, tweet client indicators

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

The official Android Twitter client seems to be taking inspiration from other apps with a batch of new features appearing for some users. Like many third-party apps, it's now showing which client tweets originated from, and there are YouTube-style video playback controls that skip forward or back a few seconds with a tap on the right or left side of the screen.

 
Left: No indicator. Right: Not no indicator.

Again, not everybody is currently seeing the new features, so they're either tests or staged rollouts.

Twitter CEO says tweet editing is achievable, but the company ‘can’t just rush it out’

Monday, November 12th, 2018

It seems Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has been feeling the pressure to launch a tweet editing feature on Twitter more than usual lately — even Kim Kardashian is using her sway to gain some in-person petitioning time. At a recent press event in New Delhi, he finally broke his silence on the feature, talking about some of the considerations Twitter needs to take into account, and stating: "We have been considering this for a while and we have to do [it] in the right way.
