Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) is finally fixing one of the annoying glitches on its social network.
The social network announced that the tweet button will be fixed and incorporated in a new tweeter update. The update will be rolled out and available today.
The quote was previously not able to embed the tweet, and it appeared as part of the whole text. The new fix makes the quoted tweet appear more organized and neat. Additionally, Twitter has added an extra 116 characters as opposed to the limited characters available in the previous versions or pre-review.
The new quote tweet button will come as a welcome relief especially to those who used to get annoyed by the previous flaw of the quoted tweet. The adjustment makes the tweets look more natural and gives it a general and welcoming visual.
To test this feature, tweeters can press the retweet button and select ‘quote tweet’. The feature will be available in the iOS Twitter app, as well as logging in through the web. So far, the feature is limited to the two but hopefully they will be available to Google’s Android and other operating systems.
There are rumors that the feature will also be introduced to other third party applications such as Tweet box. The app does not currently have support for this feature.
There was a ban on Twitter and YouTube users using these networks in Uruguay. This is after militants posted up their images while holding a prosecutor. This was not the first time the ban was imposed on the use of the two networks. The last time there was a ban, there was a petition by Reuters due to the content being posted as well as the use of these networks to influence negativity.
Changes in Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) have not been so forthcoming. However due to constant complaints and pressure from other competing applications, it is nice to see that the social network is finally listening to its users. It’s important that Twitter is finally listening and adjusting to user preferences.
