Elon Musk, the platform’s new owner, declared on Sunday that Twitter is prepared to roll out new features, including a long-text feature, beginning in early February.
Early on Sunday morning, Musk posted on Twitter about many changes that would soon be implemented.
“Later this week, a simple swipe right/left to switch between recommended and followed tweets will be available, the first phase of a far more comprehensive UI redesign. A week later, the Bookmark button (de facto silent like) on Tweet details becomes available, long-form tweets in February “He tweeted.”
Early in November, Musk declared that the microblogging platform’s users would soon be able to submit lengthy content in their tweets, which are currently limited to 280 characters.
He had stated back then that Twitter would soon make it possible to attach lengthy text to tweets, ending the farce of notepad screenshots.
In the meantime, according to Bloomberg news on Saturday, Twitter Inc. on Friday made additional employee reductions in the trust and safety team responsible for managing worldwide content moderation and in the unit related to hate speech and harassment.
According to the article, which cited persons familiar with the situation, at least a dozen more layoffs on Friday night affected employees in the company’s Dublin and Singapore headquarters.
Twitter made some changes to the trust and safety team on Friday night, according to Ella Irwin, vice president of trust and safety, who acknowledged this to Reuters but withheld further information.
Some of the layoffs, she acknowledged, were in places where there wouldn’t be enough business moving forward or where consolidation would be beneficial.
As part of Musk’s cost-cutting strategy earlier in November, the business let go of close to 3,700 workers, and subsequently, hundreds more did as well.
