Twitter is preparing to publicly test some new features that aim to promote healthy conversations, in a world that increasingly infested with social-expressions of hate and bullying. In the coming weeks several thousand users, between those who request it, can begin to experience the functions, in a phase that precedes the formal launch.
The company said in an interview at Ces, the consumer electronics trade show in Las Vegas. Among the innovations to promote positive interactions, status and tweet "ice-breaker".
The status message will let you know if you are online and available, but even if you are in another city or if you are participating in an event, for example. The Tweets icebreaker are messages that aim to stimulate the debate on specific issues, asking people what they think about a certain topic, from the last episode of a tv show, weekend programmes.
