To improve conversations and the overall experience, micro-blogging site Twitter has introduced a new prototype app, christened twttr.
The announcement was made via a tweet and the prototype app will initially be available to the first group of users via email invites.
While all can sign up for the program, only selected users who speak English and Japanese will get to use twttr instead of Twitter after downloading it.
Our prototype app, twttr, launches to the first group of participants today. #LetsHaveAConvo about new features to build a better Twitter together.

Users experiencing the new prototype app can discuss the various features available on it and tweet about it with the hashtag #LetsHaveAConvo.
The app will come with various changes including format changes to replies, new sharing options, and more to make the Twitter experience simple and convenient.
Additionally, the app will have different colors for different replies, much like in WhatsApp to differentiate between various users and follow a tweet thread easily.
To recall, twttr (showcased at this year’s CES tradeshow) has been named so in the memory of Twitter’s first-ever name when it was introduced.
Furthermore, users can provide with their feedback via an online form for further improvements.
While there is no word on when exactly Twitter plans to release the app to all, it could happen once the platform has enough feedback to add the final elements to the app.
However, we are yet to see its impact on the original Twitter app and how the micro-blogging platform manages both, keeping its aim for a better conversation environment afloat.
We will keep you posted, so stay tuned to Fossbytes.
