The update also includes quite a few updates to old features and bug fixes. You can read the complete release notes, including all of the updated features and fixes, on Twitter's website.
Here's a breakdown of the new features from Twitter's release notes:
- DMs: Say more with new emoji reactions for Direct Messages! To add a reaction, click the ♥️➕ icon that appears when you hover over the message.
- A11Y: When you Tweet you can now add alt text to any GIF just like images. Just make sure you have the "compose image descriptions" setting turned on in your accessibility settings. All these improvements are steps along the way to making Composing Tweets with alt text possible for everyone. We're excited to enable this setting as the default for everyone soon!
- Profiles: When viewing tweets on a user's profile, replies will now be displayed as conversations so you can see what the user was replying to without having to click through.
The new emoji reaction feature and conversation view make it easier to interact with people one-on-one. The conversation view is particularly useful for viewing long threads with many people chiming in.
