Great question, and one I’m hoping we’ll both have an answer to soon. The fact that third party options exist means that some people care enough about this for other people to build a solution, albeit not the best one possible. I have no clue what Facebook and Twitter’s product roadmap looks like for the future but I hope this is on it. I’m sure there are some readers on Medium who would have a better sense of that, but right now this post has been seen 110 times and I doubt Ev Williams is one of them.
While it would be nice for my ego to know I’ve thought of an idea that nobody else has yet, I find it hard to believe that’s the case. Time will tell!
Thank you for reading. I’m glad it resonated with you.
