Twitter To Hide “Arcane” @ and # Symbols From View!

Twitter is famous for it’s @’s and # symbols.

But now it’s been said that Twitter might be binding the symbols in the background so when you @ people like @Lukeewilliamss it will just look like Lukeewilliamss.

Vivian Schiller talked about their decisions and said:

“We are working on moving the scaffolding of Twitter into the background,”

“By bringing the content of Twitter forward and pushing the scaffolding of the language of Twitter to the background, we can increase high-quality interactions and make it more likely that new or casual users will find this service as indispensable as our existing core users do.”

She then said:

“We took initial steps in that direction with the introduction of media forward timelines and in-line social actions in October, and we’re already starting to see early signs that those initiatives are working well.”

Twitter will look so different without the symbols.

They should keep it the way it is now!
