Twitter for Android would work on mixed media tweets; Several new features


Twitter for Android is reportedly working on a host of new features, including support for adding images and videos to the same tweet. Among the features in the works are the statuses, awards and pronouns page. A recent report said Twitter is testing a new feature called Twitter Circle where users can select a small crowd of 150 people with whom they want to share their tweets. The microblogging platform is also reportedly working on adding an editing feature to its platform.

According to 9to5Google, a new Twitter update for Android hinted at several new features in the works. Dylan Roussel, 9to5Google contributor Point some of the new features Twitter is working on, like statuses. This feature will add a status to tweets and should also show a status on the user’s profile.

Twitter is also reportedly working on a rewards feature. Roussel spotted a button that allows users to reward a tweet. A tweet will also indicate the number of awards it has received. Separately, Join and Discover buttons have been spotted, intended for the discovery of profiles/tweets. A pronouns page is another feature Twitter is reportedly working on.

The microblogging platform also appears to allow both a photo and a video to be tweeted in the same tweet. Currently, tweets with media can only include a gallery of up to four photos or a single video. There is no option to tweet photos and videos together. Twitter is reportedly changing this by allowing users to mix media i.e. allowing them to add up to four media elements which can be photos or videos in a tweet.

This week, Twitter also confirmed that it was testing a new feature called Twitter Circle where users can select a smaller crowd of 150 people with whom they want to share their tweets. The new Twitter feature appears to be on a similar line to Instagram’s Close Friends feature, which allows audiences to be selected for their stories.

Additionally, the social media platform is said to be working on adding an editing feature to its platform. A series of alleged images that showcase various aspects of this feature have been leaked by a tipster. Along with showcasing the icons and the new interface on the web version of Twitter, the tipster also shared several unfinished options like the edit history. The iOS and Android versions should have a similar layout. Twitter has yet to officially announce this feature.
