Twitter's Tweet Reply Limit is Open to Everyone

ICYMI: Twitter’s New Tweet Reply Limit is Now Available to Everyone

Twitter’s tweet reply limit, previously restricted to a small test group, opened to all iOS users earlier this month, and is now open to all…

Social microblog Twitter ran an experiment just a couple of months ago. The company gave a small portion of its iOS users the power to limit replies to their tweets. (Ostensibly, this will help people better take control of their conversations and to avoid trolls.) It expanded to all iOS users this month. Now, everyone can enjoy it.

Twitter’s Tweet Reply Limit is Open to Everyone

The new tweet reply limit tool lets users place certain restrictions on reactions to their posts. Users can limit replies to everyone, people they follow, or users mentioned in the tweet. (If no one is mentioned in the tweet, then no one can reply to the post.) 

To use the new tweet reply limit, just tap on the box above the keyboard when composing a tweet. Then, select one of three options: Everyone, People you follow, or Only people you mention. (Choosing one does not set it as the default for future posts, by the way.) The settings also do not affect the ability to retweet or quote posts, either.
