Logging into Twitter.com yesterday, I found this appeared at the top of the page:
Since it says that I’m part of the beta group, I assume not all of you have seen this one before, which is why I decided to share it with you and give a heads up of what you might be seeing soon.
To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what the purpose is of this. Isn’t it just to replace the text “RT” with an icon?
Also I noticed that you can now have Twitter hide retweets that are not from the user himself. I assume it’s a filter that just removes tweets that begins with “RT @[another-username]”.
