Twitter Inc. is reportedly said to introduce a new beta app to give its tweeps the chance to test its upcoming features. The micro-blogging website, claims it wants to gather as much user feedback as possible from its users.
In an interview with Engadget at the recent ended Consumer Electronics Show one of the company’s Executive said that the platform would try to involve its users in testing the features before formally rolling them out for all.
However, the beta app won’t be everyone, as its reported to be to a select group—that will have to download a standalone beta app. Meanwhile, the feedback collected from these users will determine which features the company could make stable in its apps.
Unlike its Experiments Program, Twitter says it won’t enforce a non-disclosure agreement with its testers. Meaning, they will have all the power to talk freely and even share screenshots, this in the long run allows the Twitter to get more user feedback.
One of the biggest features the micro-blogging website is reportedly said to be experimenting on it the removal of the hearts, replies, and retweet buttons. Last year we reported that the company’s Chief Executive wasn’t a fun of the heart button and wanted it removed.
According to some critics, this could shake up Twitter’s core functionality but it seems like a bold move from the company.
