Twitter has announced yet another update, this time providing users with an unasked for "read messages" function similar to that of Facebook-owned Whatsapp. The announcement was met with a generally negative response with users reiterating that a Twitter edit function is more desirable.

Twitter has given us notification settings, a "quality  filter" and an online application process for Twitter accounts to receive verified status but users still want an online tool to combat trolls and their online harassment and the ability to edit those nasty typos.

Check out the update below.

"New! Direct Messages are more dynamic than ever with read receipts, typing indicators, and web link previews."
