Twitter conversation tree is aimed at easing up the difficulties you go through each time you access post replies. Twitter is currently testing new conversation tree feature with nested replies on the platform that will roll out in 2020.
Twitter conversations trees were first spotted in Twitter’s beta testing app, Twttr, which allowed Twitter to experiment with tweaks to the conversation formatting before rolling out any major changes to the main website.
As notted by respected app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, conversation trees are being tested currently on the main Twitter platform. As well as nesting replies to make following conversations easier, the new format feature will allow users to click on any tweet to focus on.

It appears that the changes will give Twitter more of a message board feel, with users noting that it is reminiscent of Reddit. Twitter had confirmed to TechCrunch that the changes are part of the major updates of Twttr features coming to Twitter. The company had also confirmed that the full updates will come to Twitter main website in 2020.
