Twitter test TikTok-like screen display
This is pretty much the exact TikTok, with a Twitter navigation bar at the bottom, again highlighting the massive influence that TikTok has had on social app development, as every platform scrambles to keep up with the latest trend.
The fact that TikTok has a billion users and more than half of them are using it every day makes it clear that TikTok is becoming a habit. So, other apps should follow suit by adopting the Stories format and adding this feature to give users a more engaging user experience.
