Twitter is introducing a themed icon for Android 13 and rebranding "Super Follows"

With Elon Musk taking over Twitter and putting the application in the spotlight, it appears that the platform is still going forward with its incoming updates. According to a source, the developers will be introducing a new theme-based icon for Android 13 and aiming to take initiatives for the rebranding of its subscription service, Super Follows.

Dylan Roussel, while digging deep into what Twitter is up to, has found that subscribing to Twitter Blue will put a blue tick right next to your username instantly.

The new owner of the application has already announced that an updated version of Twitter Blue is coming back on November 29 after becoming controversial at the time of its initial release only for iOS users.

Furthermore, Dylan discovered that Super Follow is being changed to subscriptions; however, it is not clear whether any changes will be made to how the service works. Super Follows works by allowing users to subscribe to exclusive content that is not available to general users. However, these discoveries are still in the alpha stage and have a long way to go. Dylan also found data hints towards direct messages with end-to-end encryption turned on, that was also reported by another researcher.

Elon Musk has been asking for end-to-end encryption for a very long time, and now that he's taken over the application, it appears that he might get it done soon.

And finally, the themed icon feature is also being discussed. The advantage of this feature is that the Twitter icon will now be fully compatible with the user's theme, so the app icon doesn’t look different. This feature is already being offered by several applications, and Twitter is all set to join the party.

It can be expected from the developers that with a new owner of this platform, the users might get to see ideas shared by Musk even before his takeover or after his takeover. It can also be expected that what Twitter had planned before Musk bought it will still be considered and worked on after receiving Musk’s approval.
