An official tweet announcing the passing of actor Chadwick Boseman is now the most-liked tweet ever – with more than 5.7 million likes.

Twitter confirmed this on its own verified account with a tweet that reads, “Most liked Tweet ever. A tribute fit for a King. #WakandaForever”.

Boseman, who rose to fame as Marvel’s Black Panther, passed away after a four-year battle with cancer. He was 43 years old.

Twitter Launches New Tweet Reply Feature on Android

Twitter has announced that its new reply feature – which will allow users to choose who can reply to their tweets – is now available on Android.

Essentially, before posting a tweet, users will be able to select one of three options: everyone (standard Twitter, and the default setting), only people you follow, or only people you mention – thereby controlling who can (or cannot) reply to a specific tweet.

This new setting is all a part of Twitter’s plan to give users more control over their conversations across the platform.

Here’s a quick look at exactly how the feature works:

If users select either the “only people you follow” or the “only people you mention” options then their tweet will be labelled and the reply icon will be greyed out so that it’s clear for people if they can’t reply. See image below:

People who can’t reply will still be able to view, Retweet, Retweet with Comment, and like these Tweets.
