Taking the social outta SOCIAL media! Twitter makes it possible to hide replies to tweets thus rendering their site USELESS Posted at 3:49 pm on November 21, 2019 by Sam J. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Tweeps can now hide replies to their tweets on Twitter.Yes, this is stupid. Yes, this is Twitter.Starting today, you can now hide replies to your Tweets. Out of sight, out of mind. pic.twitter.com/0Cfe4NMVPj— Twitter (@Twitter) November 21, 2019I don’t get it, folks. If you don’t want people to reply to your tweets then why are you on Twitter at all? Why bother? Surely there are plenty of other opportunities for you to sit around enjoying what you write all by your lonesome. This is really something they thought needed to be done?Really?Huh.How about just giving people a freakin’ edit button? CRAZY RIGHT? Surely listening to their users and giving them the tools they’ve actually asked for is totally out of bounds for the givers at Twitter.Other peeps seem to think this is as stupid as I do …JUST FIX THE MF-ING FREEZING AND LAGGING!!!— Lizzy Lou Who ?? (@_wintergirl93) November 21, 2019WHAT SHE SAID.Everyone: Please, an edit button.Twitter:Everyone: We're begging.Twitter:Everyone: For the love of all things holy, an edit button!...Twitter: Here's a thing where you won't have to see what other people say.— Michele Blood (@BloodBrief) November 21, 2019 Trending OMG-LOL! Receipt-filled thread mocking #BlueAnon for each and every CRAZY conspiracy theory on the Left is an EPIC must-read The Lincoln Project responds to flyers allegedly 'being mailed' that call out the super PAC's leadership See, edit button.This ain’t rocket science, Twitter.People should take their ratios like a man… Or woman. ?— ZUBY: (@ZubyMusic) November 21, 2019Buck up little camper, right?Daylight is the best disinfectant. How else can we learn and evolve as a species. pic.twitter.com/AB4jHuUlkS— The Doctor (@TennantRob) November 21, 2019If people can read the hidden replies anyway, whats the point?— Jamie (@jamie2181) November 21, 2019When has Twitter ever done anything that really had a point? My guess is some whiny blue check got tired of being ratioed for tweeting a dumpster fire of stupid so Twitter in their infinite wisdom rushed to their rescue and was like, ‘Here ya’ go wimpy little blue-check who can’t stand by your own ideas and probably cries yourself to sleep every night, you can hide the meanies on our site.’Just stupid.this is just an embarrassingly bad ideahey, it's social media minus the social part— Gianbattista (@gbtiepolo1) November 21, 2019You might as well make and option to close comments altogether.— Tsukkomi (@ljenkins314) November 21, 2019If you hide a reply, when people look at your tweet twitter will show a message that the tweet has hidden replies and here is how to find them.— Boomieleaks (@notwokieleaks) November 21, 2019That concern is exactly why we built transparency into the feature. You can see when a tweet has hidden replies, and you can go to a section to see which replies were hidden. We think this is a good balance to let people control their conversations but still retain transparency— Kayvon Beykpour (@kayvz) November 21, 2019Dude, people can mute or even block people, they can even mute entire conversations.This just seems … redundant.And dumb.Twitter defeating the purpose of Twitter……— WHISTLE BLOWING SECRET SQUIRREL (@SecritSqrl) November 21, 2019Aces, Jack.Related:‘Yeah, hi’: Arkansas journo from paper that broke Hunter Biden baby story makes fool of Julia Ioffe for calling her a Russian troll Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Tags: social mediatwitter recent stories US News The Lincoln Project responds to flyers allegedly ‘being mailed’ that call out the super PAC’s leadership US News SIREN: NY State Senate Majority Leader calls on Gov.
