Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says Twitter’s latest makeover isn’t set in stone – Recode
Twitter has changed some things around, and some of its most active users aren’t happy about it. In other news, water is wet.To catch you up in case you don’t spend all day on Twitter: This week, the site changed how @replies — the conversations among users — are displayed. As of Thursday, you can direct a tweet at specific people without their username counting against your 140-character-per-tweet limit.Sounds geeky, but power-user critics have said that the way this change was implemented makes it harder discern for whom a tweet is intended. And Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has jumped right into customer-service mode.“Still working on this,” he tweeted to author Zeynep Tufekci, who said the design change was hurting conversations. “Wanted to give more characters for replies and put more focus on text. Can’t lose visibility of who’s in.”
