Statuses on Twitter? The social network is testing the feature • ENTER.CO

One of the features of Twitter that I like the most is that, being a network mainly for writing whatever and posting memes, it can confuse people. That is, it is difficult to determine if you are spiteful, in love, sad, etc. especially if you are a person who is not used to writing many personal things… now Twitter wants you to give your followers more context.

The social network is launching a test function called “states”, for the moment, they are testing it with some users in Australia and the United States. According to an anonymous Twitter spokesperson, the new dynamic they are developing aims to give tweets more context without users having to describe the situation.

“For a limited time, we are testing a feature that allows you to add a status topic from a predetermined list to your tweets to provide more context to your followers,” the spokesperson said as reported on TechCrunch. Although the function has not arrived in our region, we know how it works thanks to the users who published screenshots of her screen.

We can see that the states proposed by Twitter are a small “statement” accompanied by an emoji related to it in the best Facebook style. This will be placed below the user’s name; of course, it will be visible exclusively to the tweet where it was posted. Everything indicates that users cannot customize the states, but rather choose from a long list with situations such as “holiday mode”, “spoiler alert”, “good morning”, among many others.

Although it has not reached all users, the comments on the publication that shared the screenshot are not very encouraging. Apparently, users have not been satisfied with the latest features such as “cotweet” with which you can edit the same trill between two people. It should be clarified that as it is a test function, we are not sure that it will stay forever on the social network.
