    Twitter introduced a new feature a few months back that allows blue tick users to pin DM (direct message) in their inbox. The feature allows up to six conversations at the top of your inbox to be pinned to help declutter the inbox and find the important conversations easily. But now, Jane Manchun Wong, the famous tech blogger shared an insight about the upcoming Twitter feature that will change the way we look at replies on the micro-blogging website. She shared two screenshots along with this line - "Twitter is working on ‘Pin reply’” - to save the selective replies on top of the list.

    This is similar to the other social media platforms such as Instagram and video-sharing platform YouTube, where creators or account holders can pin the selective comments on top. It seems like Twitter is following the trend- and wants to implement for its users what other social media apps have! Though there is no official information from Twitter itself, the shared screengrabs by Manchun Wong about the ‘Pin Reply’ features can be expected soon. The tweet suggests that Twitter will bring the feature while tapping on a reply of a particular tweet, which will show up the options such as 'Unfollow', 'Add/remove from Lists', and 'Pin Reply'. Till now, Twitter users can pin their own tweets on top of their profiles. Also Read: Twitter is testing Vibe Check feature! Here's everything you need to know

    Twitter is coming up with new features!

    Not just pinned reply, but Twitter is reported to be working on several other features. Since the Elon Musk acquisition, the edit button is not a secret! Even Twitter Communities itself confirmed in a tweet, "yes, we’ve been working on an edit feature since last year! No, we didn’t get the idea from a poll.. We're kicking off testing within @TwitterBlue Labs in the coming months to learn what works, what doesn’t, and what’s possible." But when it will be rolled out, there is no official comment. Considering all the hype that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has built around this feature, it is likely to happen soon.

    Besides that, Twitter is rolling out several new features for its live audio Spaces such as giving access to analytics for its hosts and co-hosts on iOS and Android devices. Moreover, Twitter is testing a feature that will tweet out a Space card once hosts start a Space to make it easier for users to engage and share with spaces, a TechCrunch report mentioned. Well, Twitter's audio feature Space will now share more information at the top Space Bar such as who’s shared a Tweet and more.
