Popular microblogging and social platform – Twitter has again delighted users as it announces the rollout of its not so new feature that allows pinned Direct Messages (DMs). The company made the announcement via a tweet on its social platform on Thursday. The feature which was only available to Twitter Blue subscribers will now be available to all users on Android, iOS, and the web respectively.
Although the feature appears not fully rolled out yet as few complaints have surfaced of accessibility on one platform and not the other. For users on the iOS platform interested in activating the feature, make a swipe to the side on a conversation to reveal a pin, tap on it and the conversation will be moved to a new “Pinned conversations” section at the top of your DM inbox. In recent times pinned messages have proven to be very useful and helpful as a handful of conversations can easily be accessible. The new pinned feature has limited the number of conversations you can keep at the top of the list to only six conversations. It’s expected that few users might be disappointed as they would desire to keep more numbers.
Now that the pins feature is rolling out for all, two features that Twitter Blue’s exclusive Labs currently has and will not be sharing widely is the: longer video uploads feature and NFT profile pictures. For users interested in having those exclusive features, they’ll need to subscribe to Twitter Blue at a cost of $2.99/month in the US (for other countries varies by location).
Recently Twitter users in Nigeria had real reasons to smile and celebrate as the Government ban on Twitter was lifted after the social media platform has met the six conditions laid by the Federal Government. The Technical Committee set up by was able to resolve the impasse between the government and the micro-blogging social platform after several months of the ban.
