Twitter recently announced its transparency report. This has come after the whole acquisition of the company that was happening. Elon Musk was taking over the company but then refused to do so. The multimedia company brings up updates. Now they are bringing a feature that will display how many tweets are posted by a user in a month.
Twitter is testing multiple features, including multimedia features. It is testing a feature that displays how many times a user tweets per month. The feature was spotted by reverse engineers last month. According to TechCrunch, select Twitterati has gained access to it. TechCrunch quoted that a Pew Research Center study in 2019 revealed that 10 percent of Twitter users post 80 percent of tweets on the platform, and the median user posts twice per month.
“This is part of an ongoing experiment in which we want to learn how providing more context about the frequency of an account’s Tweets can help people make informed decisions about the accounts they choose to engage with,” a Twitter spokesperson said to TechCrunch.
This comes after the micro-blogging site announced a multimedia feature for users to add images, videos, and GIFs to one tweet. Twitter is trying to support more visual elements on its platform. “With this test, we are hoping to learn how people combine different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters,” Twitter said in its statement.
Based on past studies, it’s not surprising that the general reaction to this feature among dedicated users is horror at how much we tweet. In 2019, the Pew Research Center found that 10% of Twitter users create 80% of the tweets on the platform. The study also showed that the median user on Twitter only posts twice per month. As of last quarter, Twitter has 237.8 million monetizable daily active users.
