Twitter Profile Handle Actions
Twitter Handles as Profile Image instead of spelt out handles that perform actions.
In twitter Compose a user begins to type out a users handle, like @Apple but instead of @Apple the Profile Image for @Apple shows instead . Like an emoji. This reduces character count in tweets the full handle is a single handle profile handle image.
The tweet to the receiver is to many mentioned handles has profile handles profile images instead of spelt out full @TwitterHandles
The actions to @Handles can the be executed in various ways. The receiver can single tap a Profile Handle Image to say switch with a single Tap from Profile Image in a received message to full spelt out Handle. Ie, would become @Apple. Tapping again @Apple goes back to
More Actions can then be created. A Tap and hold on a Profile Image Handle could be used to Rely to that handle… Live or in a New Compose Tweet to that Handle or As a Reply-All to all Handles in the Tweet.
With Developer Imagination more Actions to Twitter Profile Image Handles could be made.
The user in Settings can switch on feature or turn off.
Thats the basic idea. Thanks. Chris
Further, Profile Handles are in a Circle Shape. The outside Circle could be used as indications by color code traffic lights. Green Circle edge. User following you. Amber, not yet following… Red edge. Blocked you. These are extensions to using Profile image Handles instead of spelt out handles.
I do realize, that in iOS that taping on @twitterHandles already performs certain actions. Like a single tap opens a user profile. Tap and hold opens other actions.. mini profile and other actions block etc. But in my idea. A Handle, Viewed as a Profile Image can then respond with other actions as described. Or override iOs actions by setting to achieve.
