Twitter is beginning a brand-new test on iOS and Android that will let users change discussion settings on live tweets.
According to a tweet from Twitter Canada’s head of interactions, Web Cam Gordon, the social networks platform will now provide users the capability to limit who can respond to a tweet after it’s live.
Twitter presented discussion settings in August 2020, however previously users might just set reply limitations when making up a tweet. Limitations consist of letting everybody reply, just individuals that you follow or just individuals that you discuss. Those limitations have not altered, the brand-new test now lets users switch these settings on live tweets.

To do so, choose a tweet you wish to alter and tap the three-dot menu button in the top-right corner of the tweet. Tap ‘Modification who can respond’ and choose one of the 3 choices.
A photo shared by Gordon shows Twitter will likewise highlight tweets getting more attention than typical and recommend users alter the discussion settings for those tweets.
I had access to the brand-new function on both Android and iOS. It’s not clear how prevalent the test is.
