Twitter users in Canada can now hide their replies to their tweets

In April, this year, Twitter announced that it has plans to experiment with a new feature. According to the new feature, it will enable users to hide replies to their tweets. This new feature was supposed to go live in June after it was revealed in February this year. The company has announced that they are going to start rolling out the new feature to users in Canada from next week onwards. This is the very first time that Twitter will allow its users to gain control over replies to their tweets.

For all this time the feature was tested by twitter internally. Twitter is going to introduce a new option called hide reply. This will allow users to hide replies to their replies. The feature will not remove any tweets. Instead, it will hide them from the default view. In order to view the hidden replies to the tweet, you need to tap on the grey icon to see them.

Twitter in a blog post announcement said that it understands that “distracting, irrelevant, and offensive” replies can be harmful for most users, derailing them from the main discussion. Twitter also disclosed how the feature will work using animated GIFs.

This new feature will be rolled out for the Canada users from next week. This will enable them to hide replies to their tweets. Other around the world will be able to see and engage with hidden replies by tapping a grey icon that will appear alongside tweet details.

Twitter says that by rolling out the feature in a single country, it will have enough feedback to understand if the feature is working fine. They will understand whether the feature will work for the rest of the countries or not. The company will tweak the feature based on the feedback it receives from users.

The new feature will remain in testing over the next few weeks. Twitter is inviting everyone to share their feedback about the new feature. Twitter has been going through a lot of criticism lately over its inability to fight spam and abuse on its platform.
