As of now, Twitter offers four options to users, which include the ability to reply to, retweet, or quote, like, and share a tweet. The Share Tweet button expands to allow users to bookmark a tweet, copy the link and share it through other apps available on a user’s smartphone. Now, the company is testing a new feature that replaces the Share button with a new WhatsApp icon that allows users to share tweets directly in the messaging app.
On the one hand, this feature will allow users to easily share tweets on WhatsApp, on the other hand, it will make it difficult to share content on other platforms like Instagram, Messenger and the Messages app if that’s what they want.
TechCrunch reports that this feature is currently available to select Android users, and that Twitter is likely to expand support for this feature to more users in the coming days.
