Twitter has announced the rollout of a new prototype application by, appropriately, a tweet. This new app is called "twttr," which is a throwback to the original name, and it was originally shown off at CES in January.
Twitter is using Twttr as an experimental testing space where they can focus on new designs for threaded conversations on the social media platform. The current iteration of this prototype app show tweets and replies as more like chat bubbles, reminiscent of messenger apps like iMessage or WhatsApp. The replies in threads also appear to be color-coded to differentiate between people you follow and everyone else.
The prototype app will also be used to test out other possible changes that Twitter wants to make to their overall product. Examples of this include status update fields and icebreakers being used as pinned tweets to encourage users to converse with each other.
