Twitter to finally introduce pronouns to user profiles
Twitter is set to add the long-sought option to add pronouns to users’ profile pages.
As part of a sprawling design shakeup, the social media platform that boasts some 192 million daily active users will introduce a new ‘About’ tab on accounts.
Alongside options to add their date of birth, job title, current location and interests will be a dedicated section to list their pronouns.
The ‘About’ tab will be to the left of the already existing ‘Tweets’, ‘Tweets & Replies’, ‘Media’ and ‘Likes’, according to mock-ups seen by TechCrunch.
Twitter has not provided a timeline for the slated update, but did say it would be “coming soon”.
