This feature will be rolled out to the web app and Android in the coming weeks, reported The Verge quoting Twitter.

Yesterday, Jane Manchun Wong, who reverse-engineers apps for hidden features and security vulnerabilities, disclosed that Twitter was testing a tool that provides more clarity on how tweets are being shared.

Wong also revealed that the company is implementing a tabbed retweets page for Android. This feature will let users view two tabs - one that shows the numbers of retweets with comments and the other without comments.

The micro-blogging site is working on ‘Scheduled Tweets’ too, which allows users to set region and time.

Besides these features, the company is testing a new layout for threaded conversations for iOS and web users. When rolled out, it will make conversations easier to read and follow on social media.

Earlier this month, Twitter revealed that in a bid to clean up conversations on social media, it would test sending users a prompt when they reply to a tweet using "offensive or hurtful language".
