Twitter is Considering introducing Text balloons and Online Status. Twitter is considering presenting its platform with text balloons and online status, with the aim to stimulate conversations.
The company “plays with” adding the two functions, let Sara Haider,
at Twitter responsible for the development of the platform, know through the social medium.
The speech bubbles should make it clearer who responds to another person on Twitter.
With blue speech bubbles, the company needs to indicate its tweets of users.
A purple speech bubble mentions the person who began the conversation.
The status will allow users to see if a user is online through a green ball.
Haider stated that both functions are in a design phase.
The images she shared, according to her, “absolutely not in production phase”.
Twitter may even be in the design phase, and the text balloons and online status will not be performed at all.
