Twitter No Longer Allows Screenshots

Shared by reverse engineering expert and security researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter displays a prompt when users screenshot a tweet. ‘Share Tweet instead?’ reads the notification with two buttons: Copy link and Share tweet.

Jane writes "Twitter is trying to persuade me to Share Tweet or Copy Link instead of taking a screenshot of the Tweet."

According to her, this new feature is twitter's effort to increase engagement and attract more users to their app.

A Twitter official told The Verge that the prompt is a test for a small group of iOS users.

Recently, Twitter also began rolling out the Edit Tweet button to its users. The feature is currently available only in select countries and for select users. As announced by Twitter, Twitter Blue users in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to use the “Edit Tweet" feature.

The company says the feature will come to the US soon.
