Twitter users would surely get excited with the new feature that is coming to them. The giant social media company said that it is testing a new function that would allow users to remove their followers without the need of blocking them.
As of the moment, removing a Twitter follower can only be done using one method. You need to block the users and then unblock them. However, this also means that you would also no longer follow their accounts, which is a frustrating thing to happen, especially if you want to know what he or she is tweeting about.
However, this could soon all change as Twitter said that it would release a new feature that allows you to remove your followers, but still remaining as one of their followers. The giant social media firm announced that they are “making it easier to be the curator of your own followers’ list. Now testing on the web: remove a follower without blocking them.”
Twitter added that if users want to remove their followers. they need to “go to your profile and click ‘Followers,’ then click the three-dot icon and select ‘Remove This Follower.'”
Users Could Soon Remove Their Followers
Twitter’s announcement was able to generate more than 1,300 retweets, 2,500 quote tweets, 4,700 likes. Many consumers already shared their opinions about the new feature. They said that they are quite excited about the new function since they no longer need to block the individuals they don’t want on their follower list.
However, there are some users who are complaining about some issues that their accounts are having, especially when it comes to suspensions. One of them said that they got “got suspended and I never violated the Twitter rules. Could you please consider and unsuspend it? I appealed the suspension via the Help Center form but obtained no response. Thank you! Case number: 0227517655.”
Going back to the new function, testing similar functionality as an official Twitter feature is an admission that it could probably be easier and that people could benefit from it. It’s also yet another case of Twitter making the habits of its users’ official features, just like the @reply, hashtag, and retweet.
Aside from the new remove follower feature, the giant social platform is also working on other functions to enhance user experience. These include full-width images and videos.
Full-Width Images and Videos Capability
As of the moment, most videos and images on the giant online platform are always cropped if you don’t actually click the content. The company introduced bigger images with improved cropping controls for its mobile apps earlier this 2021. The tech firm also tested the bigger photos and improved image previews in March before rolling them out broadly two months later, a short timeline we could see again if the test product sticks.
And now, the company is testing better versions of the full-width videos and images that could fill the full frame from left to right instead of just offering larger margins for videos and photos. The tech giant platform said that the upcoming changes result in much larger images and videos that look better in the feed and a cleaner, more modern design that doesn’t unnecessarily squish tweets to the right of users’ profile pictures.
