Twitter Will Soon Let You Schedule Messages, Filter The Most Liked Tweets

Twitter is frequently bringing new features for its users in order to improve the overall user experience. The company is really working hard to compete with other similar platforms.

Twitter rolled out a revamped version of its desktop version back in July this year. Then the company announced two major changes in August. Twitter updated its direct messages section with the ability to search for groups and people. Secondly, the company announced that its upcoming feature will filter out messages from non-followers. The filter will only block potentially offensive messages.

Today, a reverse engineer and leakster Jane Manchun Wong recently spotted a new feature that is coming to the web app. According to Jane, Twitter is adding a new feature that will allow you to schedule tweets. It seems like Twitter is following Telegram’s footsteps as the platform released a similar feature last month.

Scheduled messages was a popular demand by Twitter users and people had to rely on the third-party applications to schedule their tweets.

Jane received a good response from users and by the look of things, people are eagerly waiting for this functionality. However, Twitter users are still wondering if they would be allowed to draft a scheduled tweet. One of the users tweeted:

Does that mean someone couldn’t go pull down content after you’ve scheduled?

Jane further added that Twitter is testing a full-size image viewer for the web application. Moreover, Twitter will let its users to filter their tweets based on various engagement metrics. More specifically, the advanced Engagement option will allow you to filter the most liked, retweeted content.

These features are currently a work in progress and the company is yet to announce a release date. If all three of them pass the testing phase, you will be able to spot them in your web application very soon. Do you find these features useful? Let us know in the comments below.
