Twitter users will now be able to see what elements of their tweets will become clickable before the tweet has even been sent.
With a small change to the desktop version of the site, users of the social media site will be able to better understand which parts of their tweets will be interactive to followers as they type.
Anything that is clickable in a tweet, i.e. hashtags, @mentions and links to other sites will become blue before you click send/tweet.
The highlighted text isn’t clickable before sending the tweet, but users can right-click on them to take them to a new tab or window.
This then means that a user will be able to follow other conversations on Twitter which are based around a hashtag, or possibly view the profile of the person that the tweet is aimed at before making the tweet final.
Highlighted tweets are currently only available on the desktop version of the site.
