Twitter tests a new layout for replies

Twitter is experimenting with a couple of new variations for tweet interaction in an effort to boost engagement.

As shown in the image above, Twitter has a new layout mock-up in place, which includes the following changes:

  • Threaded replies to individuals’ responses to see who’s responding to what within a tweet reply chain
  • Color codes changed to purple for responses from the original tweeter, and blue for users’ reply
  • Green dot on profile image to indicate when a user is active, which can be turned off

These changes are not final, Twitter’s official is asking users for suggestions to make the new layout more conversational.
