Twitter will now let Android users select and copy texts directly from tweets

Twitter appears to be paying heed to Android users who believe that its app has long been neglected. It has always been totally functional, but not as user-friendly as its iOS equivalent.

This may not seem like a big thing, but it’s a giant step forward: Twitter appears to be introducing the ability to select text within tweets to the Android version of its app.

Jane Manchun Wong, a leaker, and hidden feature investigator mentioned this upcoming feature in a tweet posted early Saturday. Twitter for Android has always lacked easy text selection.


However, users have discovered a way around this by utilizing Overview Selection (a valuable feature that lets users select text from any screen to copy and paste). But, Mishaal Rahman, one of the top podcasters and Android experts, says that this feature is only available in a very small section of smartphones.

It’s probably time for Twitter to develop a method for users to select and copy text directly from the Android version of its app (and not trying to find some way to make it a paid feature, as the company has done already with other tools). It’s also odd that it took so long to add, but it’s good to know that it’s on the way. Now, all we have to do is wait to see when this new update will be available.
