Twitter has begun to make dramatic changes to how users can interact with the platform. Most recently, there was news that the platform is rolling out a feature allowing users to switch between private and public conversations. The company, though, appears to have not gotten its social media etiquette report card at hand yet. This week, Twitter announced a host of changes that will further curb the ways users can interact with each other. Several of the changes put in place were first reported by Recode’s Kara Swisher. Here’s what else is about to change for the social media giant’s users.
More changes coming
Michael Montano will be leaving Twitter. The latest effort to get people to use the platform more is an effort to encourage users to use more of the service’s features. Twitter is going after those who are currently inactive, or who are using the service less frequently. As part of those changes, Dantley Davis will be joining Montano’s role as head of government outreach. Davis will be working with Congress and the Executive branch.
Swisher reported that Lauren Ina Fass is leaving the company. Ina Fass was hired by Twitter in 2017 as its head of diversity. She’s left her position to join the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport as president and CEO.
Twitter is releasing several data tools
One of the more radical changes that will happen over the coming months will be the release of a number of data tools that will be rolled out to Twitter’s users. Twitter will be issuing more detailed data about how these tools are being used by its users. As part of this, the “#TweetStats” tool will be released, a collection of data Twitter’s teams track when people tweet certain phrases. Twitter’s analysis will include which tweets are the most popular, as well as how often certain words or phrases are used.
