New Delhi: Twitter CEO Elon Musk confirmed that social media platform will no longer show labels that identify the type of device used for tweeting. Device label used to show from which device the tweet has been tweeted, i.e. if a tweet is shared from an Android device then it shows “Tweeted from Android” and for iPhones, it shows “Tweeted from iPhone”.
Earlier, Elon Musk shared the information from his Twitter account to which he wrote, “And we’ll finally stop adding what device a tweet was written on (waste of screen space & compute) below every tweet. Literally, no one even knows why we did that.”
Using these markers, Twitter claims, “helps you better understand how a Tweet was posted.”
Twitter’s help site states, “This additional information provides context about the Tweet and its author.”. It adds, “If you don’t recognise the source, you might want to find out more about the content.”.
In addition, this function has been used to expose Android brand advocates tweeting from competing for iOS devices.
