Twitter is currently working on testing a new threaded conversation layout that will help make it more obvious for users to know who’s talking to whom. Considering the GIF that released by the Twitter Support team, the new update will make use of lines and indentations to sharply indicate that a reply is meant for a specific tweet.

According to some tech analysts, it appears useful for longer threads where participants go back-and-forth and where people post responses to several separate tweets at the same time.

The social media company has been testing this layout for more than a year now on its prototype app twttr, TC noted. However, app researcher, Jane Manchun Wong posted a demo on her account at the beginning of April this year.

Wong’s demo revealed much more about the app as it was seen that clicking on a tweet in the threaded layout expands it and gives you an easy way to post a response to the very tweet.

The platform has been experimenting with different types of layouts for quite some time now, which includes putting labels on conversation threads.

It will only become widely available if Twitter sees that it’s good enough to go to everyone in the nearest future.
