Twitter’s experimental app Twttr is already more popular than Twitter itself among those who are trying it out.
In a tweet, Sara Haider, Twitter’s director of product management, explained that initial reactions suggest that many of the features currently undergoing testing are proving highly popular with the participants.
One of the main feature being tested is the removal of all engagement buttons in conversation threads. In its clutter-less design, Twttr lets users like a conversation with a right-to-left swipe, while tapping a tweet brings up the retweet and reply buttons. The app is also testing “labels” to help identify who is who in conversations, a feature Twitter is already planning to roll out in its main app.
Twttr also includes many of the new features that have rolled out to Twitter recently, such as Dark Mode, Black Out and improved camera mode.
If you’re keen to try Twttr for yourself, you can still apply to join the program. However, you will be expected to use it as your primary Twitter app, and it’s only available for iOS.
