UNITED STATES: Twitter is developing new tools to encourage users to use the social network, the most recent of which is a notification designed to persuade users to share a tweet rather than just screenshot it.
Twitter users can utilize the website screenshot to save a “tweet” that has been liked, send it to friends, or share it on other social media sites. However, the tech business doesn’t appear to like its use and is already searching for a strategy to persuade consumers to choose the platform’s internal options.
As a test, a message that appears when a user screenshots a tweet appeared for some users of this social network, as the reverse engineering specialist Jane Manchun Wong noted.
The user is given two options with two buttons in this message to share the tweet: copy the link to the article or share the tweet.
Since a screenshot does not result in interaction with platform content or monetization, which the business tracks internally using the monetizable daily active users (mDAU) metric, this strategy is reportedly in reaction to Twitter’s efforts to enhance its internal growth.
The “Try Twitter” project, which grants some people access to information and communication services, was launched by the social media platform in August, according to Jane Manchun Wong’s announcement. On social networks, you can read messages and follow users without logging in.
Also, the “Edit Button” functionality has begun to roll out on Twitter for US Blue members. The feature has been made available to Blue subscribers in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand via the platform.
The new tweet editing function is subject to several limitations. For example, 30 minutes after a tweet has been posted; users are unable to change it. Monthly payments for Twitter Blue subscriptions are based on a $4.99 regional minimum.
