Twitter Will Soon Remove What We Posted Our Tweet From!

TECH NEWS – The changes to Twitter continue. Today, you can still see under tweets if they were posted from an iPhone, for example. It won’t be there for much longer.

 

If you look at Twitter, you can see if someone has posted a tweet from a browser, Tweetdeck, or iPhone, for example. Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, will get rid of it. (We wouldn’t be surprised if he replaces it with Twitter Blue advertising so we can pay for the service; we’ve reported on Twitter Blue before.) It was funny because there were examples of Apple’s most significant mobile rival Samsung advertising its new mobile phones from an iPhone or some celebrities advertising an Android device from an iPhone.

“Part of today will be turning off the “microservices” bloatware. Less than 20% are needed for Twitter to work! And we will finally stop adding what device a tweet was written on (waste of screen space & compute) below every tweet. No one even knows why we did that,” Musk wrote on Twitter.

MKBHD, a YouTuber, responded to it. In April 2018, he highlighted Gal Gadot promoting the Huawei Mate on the social platform with a twist. It already indicated what the celeb used to post the advertisement: an iPhone. That’s not the Huawei Mate (and there’s no way it has iOS!). Gadot then blocked MKBHD. So this kind of trickery can’t happen again…

One other angle should be pointed out. If a bot is posting (automated tweets, e.g., every hour, there are several examples), it is almost impossible that it is doing it from Android or iPhone. The transparency will also disappear as Musk removes this public metadata, which, so far, has likely never bothered the vast majority of the users. We fear that he will use that space to push Twitter Blue in our faces (which, we might add, cannot even be activated in several countries yet).
