New Twitter Settings Allow Users to Change Who can Reply After Tweets are Posted

Twitter has a New Tweet Editing Feature, but It isn’t the Much-Wanted Content Editing Button

Twitter has made a change to its platform which allows users to tweak who can reply to tweets after they are posted to the microblog…

Twitter is rolling out a new option. It gives users the power to change who can reply to a tweet after it’s posted to the platform. No, it’s not the Edit button so many people have asked for. But, it does give users more options about who they interact with on the microblog. Twitter is making the new tool available to everyone across the globe on iOS, Android, as well as the website.

New Twitter Settings Allow Users to Change Who can Reply After Tweets are Posted

In order to use it, simply click or tap on the three-dot menu in a tweet and look for the option to appear. Users can select from everyone can reply, only followers can reply, or only people mentioned in the tweet itself. Of course, there’s an existing way to do this, though it’s been limited to pre-publication. Now, people can change who can reply after tweets go live, which is the closest the platform has gotten to editing content.
