Twitter has launched a new public beta for users for threaded replies. The feature basically mimics the way Reddit threads work; collating all replies under the original tweet when expanded.
First introduced last August, the feature has been tweaked based on user feedback and comments. Twitter says the new interface is designed “to make it easier to see more of what people are saying.”

It’s worth noting that with the new reply system, you can see the status of the tweet replies. Blue denotes people you follow, while replies from the original sender are marked in grey.
For stats junkies, the tweet statistics are now buried deeper in the tweet. This includes likes and retweet stats – previously it is in the original tweet, now it is only accessible once the tweet is expanded.
For those who want a taste of the new beta, you can head over to here to apply. Unfortunately, the beta is currently limited to iOS users, with no word of availability for Android OS.
