Much like Twitter’s constantly updating timeline, it can be tricky to keep up with all of the site’s latest tweaks and changes. We’ve collated it all for you here.
Want to catch up on last month’s updates before you dive into June? Check them out below.
Last month, we reported that public accounts would be able to submit verification claims again – and Twitter shut it down after just one week. There was a huge number of applications submitted, and it doesn’t bode well for the public verification process moving forward. Maybe Twitter will open it up for a limited period each time to better handle the backlog? Watch this space!
It’s finally got a name – Twitter’s subscription model is incoming, and it’s called Twitter Blue. If you sign up for this premium version of Twitter, you’ll get a variety of new features, including:
So far, the premium version is only available in Australia and Canada, but if it’s successful in those markets, it’ll no doubt be hitting UK shores soon.
Twitter recently introduced measures to allow you to choose who can reply to your tweets, and now they’re extending that further. Soon enough, you may be able to remove yourself from being mentioned in someone else’s tweet, stopping people from being able to click through or mention you again. It looks like you might also have the option to choose who can mention you, and you’ll get new notifications if someone mentions you who you don’t already follow.
This is all in very early stages at the moment, and was tweeted out by Dominic Camozzi, a privacy designer at Twitter, but could represent some useful tools for when you get dragged into conversations you don’t want to be in, or if your company is tagged untowardly.
If you create newsletters via Revue, then you could soon get access to a ‘Subscribe’ button directly via your Twitter feed. As part of Twitter’s acquisition of the newsletter subscription service, they’re making it easier for new people to subscribe to your feed – so instead of having to have a pinned tweet, you now have a purpose-built space on your Twitter profile to encourage sign-ups. It’s worth noting that if your newsletter is a paid-for subscription, Twitter/Revue takes 5% of the revenue, although this is a fairly small cut when considering other services.
