Twitter developing its own status update like Facebook’s “feelings” feature

Twitter is working on a “vibe check” feature which allows users to create statuses. Jane Manchun Wong (reverse engineer and researcher) shared images of the Twitter feature that showed a box called “Set a Status” just below where you would normally type your tweet. The first examples were “Eating delicious ramen” (first example) and “Lurking on Twitter”.

This seems like an additional way to give personality to your post. Wong shared with The Verge a screenshot showing the placeholder status “Listening To A. G. Cook” beneath her name. It is unclear if this feature will be available to all users, or just for Twitter Blue subscribers.

This feature has been compared to Facebook’s “feelings”.

Alessandro Paluzzi also noticed this feature on Twitter, along with Wong. Paluzzi also shares unreleased features. He tweeted, “Twitter working on Vibes… It should be possible to also add an Emoji. Perhaps it is something like the feeling/activity option in Facebook posts.”

Twitter revealed earlier this month that it is testing new features that allow users to remove themselves from discussions or conversations they do not want to participate in. Twitter shared a short video via their Twitter Safety account that shows how the unmention button allows users to remove themselves from specific tweets and also gives them the ability to remove themselves from all replies to the conversation.

The unmention feature prevents users from ever mentioning another user in the same conversation. Users who unmentioned themselves in a conversation won’t receive notifications about the conversation but they can still see the whole conversation.

Noting that Twitter first introduced the Unmention feature in June 2021, it is important to note. Dominic Camozzi, a Twitter privacy designer at the time had posted a concept of Unmention and invited feedback.
