“No, Twitter’s update won’t make all your replies public.” Also, they always were public, so use DMs if you want privacy, ffs.
And switching the focus over to the reply-to metadata would make it much easier to allow users to “unsubscribe” from a canoe.
Odd that Twitter isn’t taking advantage of the overhaul to drop the @ altogether from replies. The reply-to ID is all they should need.
RT @rjonesy: Twitter Rules: No way to tweet at someone without broadcasting. This could be a mess - we’ll reply to random tweets to avoid broadcasting.
RT @rands: Seven more characters for tweets? This changes evrthng.
But I’m surprised they’ve even given up on what could have been a big selling point — the ability to easily replace a broken screen.
RT @fet: Why do web articles have pull quotes? You are not flipping through a magazine looking for something interesting to read.
And, yes, I still think the gesture keyboard is a valid idea.
RT @WhatTheBit: Absolutely dangerous for Apple that the future isn’t about devices, at all, but web services and AI.
RT @jakemarsh: I’ve thought FaceTime should do this “Knock Knock” thing for years. Makes video chats work like it did in movies in the 80’s.
RT @WillOremus: Google’s new messaging app Allo lets you use automated “smart replies.” Why just chat with bots when you can BE A BOT!
RT @benthompson: Non snark: the most impressive thing about Alexa is that it understands kids. I suspect Google can match. Siri certainly can’t.
RT @pierce: The pitch for Google Assistant basically boils down to “It’s like Siri, but we’re actually good at this stuff”
And a button, when composing a new tweet, to attach it to the latest public tweet I posted. There. Done.
And I guess a button in the tweet compose window to say it’s a reply to my last non-reply tweet. There. Done.
All anyone needs instead of Tweetbot’s “Topics” is automatically skipping the @ and copying the tags whenever you reply to yourself.
RT @danielpunkass: Apple needs a “Chief of Getting Siri Ahead of Everybody.” Voice control is 110% crucial to many future software markets. No surrender.
It’s all y’all’s fault for complaining that Instagram still hadn’t updated its icon for flat design.
