Twitter today launched its Twitter Prototype Program and is accepting applications from people who want to beta test new Twitter features on iOS devices. Twitter's tests will be done through a new app called Twttr rather than in the existing Twitter app.

The first feature Twitter plans to test is a new design for conversations, which will make it easier to follow replies to an initial tweet.

Twitter asks beta testing applicants for their user name, which device they most often use Twitter on, primary language, and country of residence.

After filling out the form, the company says users who have applied will receive an update on application status within a few weeks.

I don’t even use the official app anymore. You can’t do something as simple as searching your timeline for keywords, like you can on Tweetbot.

You can do that easily with Twitter's search function because it supports the same advanced search functions as the desktop site. You search your own timeline with the keyword(s) followed by "from:[username]".

macOS 10.15 is when iOS apps will start appearing on Mac. They're probably waiting for that.

Pretty sure they'll use TestFlight. A lot of companies use this approach.
Most probably yeah they will use Testflight
