In a bid to address the dysfunctionality of conversations on its app, Twitter is seeking to find a remedy in the construction of a brand new app called Twttr.
Social media can be extremely toxic at times, and Twitter is perhaps the app most prone to damaging its users as strangers with polar opposite views can address each other taps on a screen or keyboard, which makes arguments, wind ups, and trolling inevitable.
However Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is aware of these mishaps and aims to solve the problem with the introduction of a new app called Twttr, currently in a prototype phase. Twttr will introduce new features aimed at facilitating conversations including adding colours for different threads or indentations for replies, as well as feedback options for the users.
To try out this new app you will need to apply to join the company’s prototype programme on the main Twitter website. The potentially beneficial additions trialled on the Twttr app may eventually be added to the original.
