“twitter for iphone”  “twitter for android” labels removed by twitter

Elon Musk, the richest man on earth, has tweeted that Twitter will no longer display which display – an iPhone, an Android phone, or even Twitter Web – a tweet was posted.


He shared a tweet from Pubity while captioning it,’Hallelujah!’ that notified users of the situation.

The microblogging website will finally quit adding what device a tweet was posted on, according to the Twitter new boss, who called the function a waste of screen space and compute last month.


In November, in response to a user’s tweet, he wrote the Twitter will eventually cease including the device that a tweet was made on beneath each tweet (wastage of screen space & compute). Literally nobody has a clue as to why we took that action.

On Twitter, many users are praising the decision, and some are even sharing memes about how Samsung once tweeted from an iPhone about their Galaxy Unpacked Event. An additional company, Huawei, was the subject of two memorable Twitter for iPhone gaffes.

The company’s spokesperson, Gal Gadot, was first seen tweeting from an iPhone about how much she loved using her new Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The promotional tweet was actually sent by a member of Gadot’s public relations team from an iPhone, she quickly informed CNET, adding that she did love her Huawei P20 and Mate10Pro.

Twitter itself also emphasises the advantage of the feature in a publicly available guide, claiming that these tweet source labels not only help users understand how a tweet was generated but also give them valuable context regarding messages. For instance, if a tweet was labelled as a Mastodon-Twitter Crossposter,’ it would be clear that it had been posted on both Twitter and Mastodon.

The Help Center for Twitter claims that one can learn more about a Tweet’s posting process by looking at its source labels. The context of the Tweet and its author is provided by this supplementary information. If the source is unknown to one, one might want to investigate further to decide how much you can trust the information.
