Twitter tests new updates: ALT text, language preferences, hidden replies
Twitter tests adding ALT text to images, selecting language preferences and viewing hidden replies.
Twitter is trying to make images more accessible by letting you add alt text to images, to make your tweets more accessible to a wider audience.
The second feature being tested is language preferences for recommended content. The feature will direct you towards vernacular content on the platform, on the basis of the preferred languages you’ve selected
Most of the content circulating on Twitter is in English. However, the platform holds a diverse userbase from over 200 countries. The feature may let the users consume regional content too.
Third feature being tested is to view hidden replies. This is a follow-up feature for another one Twitter was recently testing that let users hide replies.
