Twitter Wants to Improve the 'Health' of Conversations - by Hiding Their Engagement

Commentator Andy Levy even declared, “thinking twitter can be fixed is science denial.”

Twitter has previously implemented very unpopular updates and changes, including Facebook-style feeds and a modified reply system.
