A Nigerian identified as Dara Oladosu, has contributed greatly to humanity with his latest technological innovation called Quoted Replies. Quoted Replies is a bot made for twitter that allows users on the micro-messaging site to find quoted comments on tweets without having to go through the hassle of searching the platform.
The bot is a big advancement on the ‘retweet with comment’ feature that the social media platform introduced some years ago which allows user to quote a tweet with their comment.
What differentiates that feature from commenting directly under a tweet is that the user’s followers can easily see the person’s comment and what it is directed at, unlike if the comment were under the said tweet.
According to Techpoint Africa, the bot was built by the Nigerian in December 2018 when he discovered that tweet’s link could be used to search twitter for quoted replies. The same media also report that the software developer built a Chrome add-on to help twitter users maximize the function of the bot more.
According to some of the users of the bot, Hamza Fetuga and Abdulhafeez Sagaya, also mobile app developers, the bot has been quite helpful. Dara was able to fix that around July 2019.
The developer said the bot has over 26,000 and 60,000 mentions for September. To make use of the app and find the replies under it, all that is needed is to reply the tweet with the bot handle, @QuotedReplies.
