The new feature is currently being tested.
Android Police has revealed that Twitter is currently testing out a new feature, which would see the social media site updating the notifications users receive when using its mobile app.
According to the site, the new notifications will appear at the top of users’ phones and will notify them when someone tweets them a reply or sends them a direct message.
Currently, they offer no additional functionality, meaning users will not be able to send a reply, nor mute, retweet or like a tweet via the new notifications.

As of right now, the new feature is currently being tested by those who utilise Twitter’s Alpha or Beta versions, and it appears that the notifications are limited to the app itself.
There is no word on if the feature will see a wider rollout.
Twitter has begun to add warnings to tweets that contain misinformation. Alternatively, you could read about Zoom’s recent acquisition of encryption startup, Keybase.
