Twitter is testing a new feature that’ll let users control who can reply to a tweet. Users who are a part of the test can choose to let everyone reply, only let their followers reply, or only let mentioned people reply to their tweets.
Twitter has always been proud of being a social media platform that promoted public conversation. But limiting replies doesn’t seem like a healthy way to hold an open conversation and it will most definitely limit resistance to agendas and narratives that can prove to be potentially worrisome in the longer run.
