The new sensation of the Internet is now Twitter’s own way of saying ‘Happy Birthday’. The social network announced on Tuesday that they will be including new features to their online platform, so users could benefit of better online experiences.
Twitter took to their official website on Tuesday to inform their users that starting with the following period they will be introducing a new way of saying happy birthday. More specifically, the social network will be endowed with a new ‘Edit Profile’ tool, which enables users to celebrate their birthdays with their followers and friends.
According to the Twitterverse, the new option allows users to select their audience and the people they want to share their birth date with. Thus, they can choose to share this particular information with their friends, their followers or simply to keep it private.
Different options have been provided for the birth date structure, as well. Twitter has already anticipated that some users might want to display their full birth date, while others will limit themselves to only mentioning the day and month. For that matter, Twitter informed users that they also have this possibility when it comes to sharing their personal data.
These changes can be easily enacted by simply pressing the ‘Edit profile’ button, the social network has explained. The message concluded by saying that Twitter is also taking the liberty of using this information for their own purposes. As a consequence, the birth date may be used to display relevant online content or simply to wish ‘Happy Birthday”.
Twitter is clearly going through a transition phase if we were to judge from the past announcements that the company has made. The social network is trying to even out the differences that exist between its online platform and other competing social networks.
The company has recently dropped the 140-character limitation that had been initially imposed on its online messages in order to give users the possibility to freely express themselves.
Among other changes, however, the most important upgrade that Twitter has made is related to the advanced security options that they have introduced. These online tools have increased users’ protection and have contributed to the diminishment of online discrimination, according to Twitter’s official declaration.
