Just IN: Selecting Text and Copying Feature Coming to Twitter for Android

Twitter users on Android will soon get an update that will allow them to select text within tweets. The firm is working on bringing a text selection feature to its Android app, according to popular app reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong’s latest tweet.

For the uninitiated, Twitter’s Android app doesn’t currently have the option to select and copy texts. If you want to copy a specific portion of text in a tweet right now from your Android phone, you will have to copy the tweet’s link, paste it into your browser, and select the text from there.

The feature has been offered on Twitter’s iOS app for a while. Long-pressing the text, as shown below, will prompt you to copy the selected text, share the text, or select all of the text in the Twitter post.

But the company is working to bring this feature to Android users. However, there is no estimated arrival time or when the company will release it, as it is still in development.
