Twitter introducing a new feature that is ‘Subscribe to Conversation’

Twitter currently working on a new feature that will allow users to follow some specific threads with a ‘subscribe to conversation’ button.

Subscribing is a route for users to follow a conversation without engaging with it directly.

Instead of liking/replying to a thread, users can just click the subscribe button to easily go back to it.

Jane Manchun Wong has a well-documented track record of discovering upcoming features before they’re officially launched.

Jane Manchun Wong on regular basis shares her findings on Twitter, Although it’s uncommon for companies to reach out and provide additional context.

In Twitter’s we have an official communications team, on the other hand, was immediate to get in front of this news.

They retweeted Jane Manchun Wong’s tweet with a message reading: “This is part of our job to make Twitter more user conversational.”

So we have a confirmation from Twitter that this feature is currently on the way, but no timeframe was given regarding the eventual launch.

Historically speaking, if the feature is far enough along in development that Wong is spotting it, then it will likely be ready for official launch soon.
