Twitter might be rolling out some major changes in 2020. The company’s vice president of design and research, Dantley Davis revealed some huge feature changes for the social media platform on Tuesday.

In a tweet, Davis let us in on the features that he’s “looking forward to in 2020.” Ideas mainly center around changing how retweets work, and how users can give or withdraw permission to participate in conversations and threads. Davis also suggested hashtag- or friend-specific tweets as a possible feature.

Since the announcement hasn’t officially been made by Twitter, it looks like the company is playing with the idea of introducing these new features. Davis also encouraged users to tweet using the hashtag #designtwitter with any feedback or ideas. Davis explained that these updates would foster a safer community on the social network, writing, “I believe giving more control to users will help create a healthier Twitter and reduce abuse. ”
