Twitter is reportedly developing a new profile page feature that is both handy and indiscreet.

Twitter has yet another in-progress feature, according to an image posted on Thursday by Jane Manchun Wong – this time, it’s a little line of text found right beneath the Tweets tab on a user’s profile page. However, this language reveals something you may not want people to know: how frequently you tweet.

The functionality is seen in the screenshot as Wong’s profile page, with the statement “Tweets every day.” In a tweet announcing the feature, Wong pointed out that it could also indicate if someone tweets weekly, occasionally, monthly, or never.

While we can understand the use of the feature — knowing how frequently an account tweets before opting to follow it might be handy — we can’t help but think it’s needless and a little uncomfortable for users to have their Twitter activity broadcast like way. Daily tweeters may not enjoy having their “Twitter addiction” on display like that, as Wong puts it.

If you’re in that camp, you could choose to tweet frequently without being characterised as a social media chatterbox, whilst others might prefer to lurk and not tweet in peace without being dubbed as a sad, tiny tweet desert.

So, while it’s a valuable yet obnoxious function, let’s hope that if the platform does decide to make the said feature available to everyone, it will also allow individuals to opt out of the same because like every other social media application, Twitter is used as a tool to influence people.

New ways to handle replies and a long-form writing tool are among the other new things Twitter is working on.

The new tool appears to follow in the footsteps of Instagram’s Close Friends function, which allows users to choose who sees their stories.
