Twitter seems to be testing a brand new button in its Android app, that may allow sharing on to your WhatsApp associates.
The new perform was noticed by TheNextWeb, and seems to be presently showing on a small variety of Android consumer’s apps. (The means Twitter check issues is by randomly enabling the function for a small variety of customers and gauging their response).
What’s additionally fascinating is that placement of the share button is being examined – in one of many screenshots TNW found (above) there is a share button instantly on the bar on the prime of the display, whereas on the second it’s the place you’d anticipate, on the share menu. (Ignore the bizarre font on the left one – that seems to be the consumer mangling their telephone settings to vary system fonts).
From a strategic viewpoint, this would definitely make sense for Twitter if it was to implement it formally: WhatsApp has over 500m common customers (as of the top of final yr), and is rising so quick it was snapped up by a nervous Facebook.
