Twitter withdraws threaded replies; Turns off twttr app

Twitter in May announced threaded replies to make the interaction easier. However last week, the social media app announced that it won't be going ahead with threaded replies on tweets, which it had hoped would make tweet interactions easier to understand.

According to user feedback, the updated reply format "made convos harder to read & join".

Twitter began testing threaded replies back in 2018, first internally, then within its experimental 'twttr' app, before rolling it out to selected iOS users back in February. Twitter invited all users to apply for access for twttr, and to share their feedback on features in testing, but it hadn't updated the app for some time, so they decided to turn it off.
