Twitter is getting statuses for individual tweets. There, I said it. WELCOME BACK TO MYSPACE HAHAHA
The company confirmed to TechCrunch that they’re rolling out this new “status” feature to select users in Australia and the U.S. for testing.
For a limited time, we are testing a feature that allows you to add a status topic from a predetermined list to your Tweets to provide more context for your followers, So whether you are about to drop a hot Tweet thread, share your shower thoughts, or have a bad case of the Mondays, your Tweets can better convey what you are up to.Twitter via TechCrunch
Take note of that wording there: “predetermined list”. Seriously? I could see this feature making sense in certain scenarios, but being limited to “Shower thought”, “Hot take” or other bullsh*t is just lame, Twitter.
Here’s a tweet by Pop Base showing the currently available statuses:
Weirdly enough this like two steps back, because even Myspace gave you more control over what you could put for a “status”. This is such a weird announcement, arriving not long after Twitter testing CoTweets.
I’m gonna go ahead and call it 0-2 on weird new ideas, Twitter. Step your game up and just give us the ability to edit tweets, sheesh.
