Elon Musk Announces Tweaks In Twitter Interface, Here’s What He Said

Twitter is gearing up for major changes to the interface and could launch a long-form text feature as early as February, Billionaire Elon Musk announced today.

In a tweet posted this morning, Elon Musk listed a number of changes to Twitter’s user interface that would be introduced very soon.

He said, “Easy swipe right/left to move between recommended vs followed tweets rolls out later this week. First part of a much larger UI overhaul. Bookmark button (de facto silent like) on Tweet details rolls out a week later. Long form tweets early Feb,” 

Billionaire Elon Musk announced in November that Twitter would soon allow users to post long-form text in their tweets, which now has a character limit of 280.

The changes announced today will be the latest in a series of changes since Elon took over the microblogging site in a $44 billion deal.

Twitter is also rolling out a much-talked-about feature that will help users find specific tweets and profiles by filtering them based on date, user, retweet count, hashtags, and more, according to reports earlier this week.
