If your team is connecting multiple Twitter accounts you can now choose which account you're replying from on the fly:

We'll choose the best reply account automatically (or use your preferences).

One important note: you'll only be able to change your reply account for Tweets due to the way direct messages and Facebook work.

Search has landed 🔎


It's now easier than ever to find a past conversation with a customer. Search by Twitter @username or a customers full name to quickly find conversations across Twitter and Facebook:

Your Conversation report will now show you a detailed breakdown of your tag usage:

This works great for conversations you're manually tagging today but is even more powerful when combined with our automations that can tag conversations based on things like phrases, keywords, language and more! And like all reports, you can export this data for further analysis too.

Interested in setting up automations for your team? Shoot us direct message to learn more 😊

View filters, Reply-all and Auto Assignments


Today we're shipping a number of small improvements to make things even better in Respond.

View Filters

First up is visibility filters in tag folders. Now you can quickly choose to see everything, only open conversations or only closed conversations:

Reply vs Reply-all

As conversations on Twitter expand you'll often want to include everyone in your reply. Today we've included a new user preference to make this a snap:

Auto-assign On Reply

This new user setting will automatically self-assign any conversations you reply to. That way, when a customer replies it will immediately be routed to your inbox where you can quickly pick up the conversation where you left off and ensure your customers have a great 1:1 experience.

Note: you can also do this on a one-off basis by using the 'Reply + Close + Assign To Me' option in the reply button menu.

Easily spot new conversations and those you've already replied to


Today we're rolling out a small improvement to help you easily spot new conversations and those you've already replied to (and are now awaiting a customer reply).

Bug fixes, improvements to tags and user presence


  • Numerous character counter bug fixes including an odd one with emojis inserted at the start or end of a Tweet reply
  • Several updates to improve the reliability of presence avatars
  • There's now a refresh button to manually fetch the latest conversations and replies...
  • ... and we now refresh your inbox automatically every few minutes too when you're idle. Leave that tab open, baby!
  • Browser tab now shows the number of open conversations in your current inbox
  • Tags folders now only include open conversations in the badge count
  • URLs and @mentions are now proper links in translated Tweets
  • Minor fixes to report tooltip formatting
  • Reply shortcut label fixed - thanks Matt @SamCartApp!

Improvements to tags and reply-all comes to the composer


  • Tags are now sorted alphabetically. More great stuff coming to tags soon too ;-)
  • The composer now defaults to reply-all and pre-populates all @mentioned users in the conversation automatically.
  • Various fixes for the composer character counter
  • Reporting tooltips now show proper time units where applicable

Reports: new high level metrics + visual refresh


Fresh new reports are here. Key metrics are now displayed on top for quick easy access while everything else has received a nice coat of polish.
