New Pin Reply option on Twitter will enable users to pin their favorite comment under a tweet. Let’s explain how it works.
Ever get a reply to one of your tweets from a celebrity? Or maybe there’s a great response that you really want more people to see.
What is Twitter Pin Reply?
Soon, you’ll be able to showcase those top replies with a new ‘Pin Reply’ option currently in testing, which, based on the latest discovery by reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong looks close to an actual release.

As you can see, Wong has found a brand-new tutorial screen for pinning a Twitter reply that outlines the fundamentals of the procedure. If you are a beginner Twitter user, we explained how to pin a tweet on Twitter, last month. Now let’s continue to discuss the potential new Pin Reply feature on Twitter further.

In May, Wong posted these instances of reply pinning in use after discovering the initial test of the feature.
With tweet reply pinning, you will be able to touch on the three dots menu on a response and maintain that reply at the top of the thread, maximum visibility for that particular engagement, as shown in these example screens.
As previously mentioned, this could be advantageous for emphasizing celebrity interaction or the greatest tweet replies. By encouraging the most imaginative responses, marketers may also be able to improve community participation by pinning the top one.
The fundamental motivation behind this, though, is to provide you more control over your tweeting experience. Over the past year, Twitter has added a variety of features to help with this, including Communities, reply restrictions, and the ability to leave a tweet conversation. Pinned replies are only one minor improvement in a larger effort by Twitter to give users greater control over how they interact and participate within the service.
Will it be a significant change? We wouldn’t call this a huge update but there may be several ways to use the option within your daily Twitter session, so it will be another thing to explore with.
And it appears to be arriving soon; we’ll keep you informed of any developments.
