Twitter shows which device people are tweeting from

Twitter shows which device the person is tweeting from, which has been used previously to mock people promoting brands.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has announced that the social media platform will stop adding labels that identify the type of device used for tweeting.

He shared the information from his Twitter account to which he wrote, “And we’ll finally stop adding what device a tweet was written on (waste of screen space & compute) below every tweet. Literally, no one even knows why we did that.”

Device label used to show from which device the tweet has been tweeted, i.e. if a tweet is shared from an Android device then it shows “Tweeted from Android” and for iPhones, it shows “Tweeted from iPhone”.

Using these markers, Twitter claims, “helps you better understand how a Tweet was posted.”

Twitter’s help site states, “This additional information provides context about the Tweet and its author.”. It adds, “If you don’t recognise the source, you might want to find out more about the content.”.

In addition, this function has been used to expose Android brand advocates tweeting from competing for iOS devices.
