Twitter has rolled out a new way to have conversations via its testing app Twttr. This new format seems to take inspiration from Reddit.

The news has come from Jane Manchun Wong, an app researcher who prides herself on finding out new features that are coming to a range of different apps. Wong has managed to find conversation trees that were being tested in Twitter's beta testing app on the main website.

From the video, we can see that Twitter is testing nesting replies in each conversation and that users can select each Tweet to enlarge and hone in on it. This change Twitter is about to implement is set to roll out sometime in 2020, and will certainly give the platform a nice fresh feel. The layout is somewhat similar to that of Reddit's, but Twitter's seems much more sleek and straightforward. What do you think about the design change?
