It was announced by both of the directors of the product management Sara Haider as well as CEO Jack Dorsey. The new features are said to be very still in the prototype phase which is why Twitter is now asking for some feedback from the users. The company wants to know about the change form before they are finished.

The new feature is now said to be testing the status indicator which says that the users who are online or who are offline in Twitter. This feature includes a green dot on the user’s profile picture. This new status indicator is present on the site which is like the Twitter that could easily be misused though as well as responses which are from the several members who are not positive. It seems that some of them are concerned about the privacy as they have said about the things that they have hoped about the status indicator which will be an optional feature from Twitter.

When it comes to the Threading features, it will give the new look to the Twitter’s reply system of the app. Now, the Twitter application will see all the main replies to the tweet with a tap through to view the individual threads as well as replies.
