By Kon Karampelas, Vice President of Design Research at Twitter, Dantiley Davis has released a list of Twitter features he wants to improve in 2020. According to this list, Twitter may fundamentally rethink how retweets and tweets work. Twitter May Fundamentally Change How Retweets and Mentions Work – The Vergehttps://www.theverge.com/2019/11/5/20950162/twitter-new-features-disable-retweets-prevent-mentions-permission-safety-privacy Twitter’s Davis On his Twitter account, he published a list of Twitter improvement plans for 2020. In a tweet titled “Features I’m looking forward to in 2020,” Davis cited five features: “Remove yourself from a conversation,” “Don’t allow retweeting of this tweet,” “I can’t tweet someone else without permission,” “Delete tweets from conversations,” “Tweet only to hashtags, interests, and friends.”
Features that I’m looking forward to in 2020.- Remove me from this conversion – Don’t allow RT of this tweet- Don’t allow people @mention to me with my permissions- This @mention from this conversion – Tweet this conversion to the hashtag interest, or the friends

In response to the tweet, the overseas technology media, The Verge, points out that “do not allow retweeting of this tweet” and “the inability of others to tweet without permission” is a great feature.
The “Do not allow retweeting of this Tweet” feature is designed to help prevent malicious users from spreading tweets across a wider Twitter network. It could serve as a harassment prevention feature,” The Verge points out. If you make a Tweet private, your Tweet won’t be retweeted by an unspecified number of people, but your Tweet will only look like a follower. If you’re a journalist, artist, or someone who finds it useful to have your Tweets spread, it’s not a good idea to keep them private. Therefore, the ability of users to set individual “whether it’s OK to retweet” their tweets “seems like a really smart approach to promote healthier conversations and reduce toxicity from the platform,” The Verge is written. In an interview with BuzzFeed News earlier, developer Chris Wezelel, who implemented the Retweet feature on Twitter, said, “Twitter has a button that can increase the reach of posts regardless of context (retweet button) “We didn’t think about the impact of creating,” he said, noting that he believes that the “Retweet button may have made the entire platform worse.” In addition, Jack Dorsey, ceo of Twitter, said he was “definitely thinking about the incentives and implications of all actions, including retweets,” and left comments that made the company plan to improve the Retweet feature.
By Marten Bjork For the feature “No one else can tweet without permission”, the underlying function of existing Twitter” must be changed to “send tweets to other users without permission”. There’s a possibility that Twitter’s functionality will be different,” The Verge points out. If you don’t have a private Tweet setting on Twitter, all Tweets may be checked from the Internet. This allows anyone to criticize or praise a user’s Tweets in the form of tweets, retweets, and replies. In particular, if you tweet to line up under the original Tweet in the form of a reply Tweet, you can make malicious Tweets appear in a position that is easy for other users to see. As a result, celebrity tweets and popular lying tweets are often caused by a large number of negative tweets. Twitter has filtering and moderation to reduce negative tweets, but it still doesn’t reduce the abuse of tweets at all. Without permission, the “You can’t tweet” feature can be expected to be of great use to reduce negative tweets.
By George Pagan III However, Davis’ list is just an experimental idea, and it is not known at the time of writing whether it will actually be implemented. Davis said, “Thanks for the feedback and discussion of ideas we look forward to exploring in the future, because we’ve received more than we expected for our published feature improvement list. Our goal is to continue to improve our conversations on Twitter, and getting feedback from the community about our ideas can be very helpful in prioritizing our work,” he tweeted. We emphasize that the features listed are just in the idea phase, and we will continue to seek feedback from the user.
Tanks for the Feedback and Discussion on the Ideas That I’m Excited to Explore in the Future. Our Goal Is Continue to Improve the Public Conversion on Twitter and Getting Feedback from the Community on Your Ideas Is Helpful as We List Your Work. https://t.co/LFb1HHZcN2
