Conversation with Author for Tweets
We now have a functionality where you can reply to a Tweet in the platform, but this functionality is broken/not very pedagogic right now. You can reply to a tweet but replies back to that tweet is not displayed in the thread if it doesnt contain the keywords/hashtags are added to the deployment. I have removed it from the front-end for now. And the tweets themselves are easier to access due to that we embed Tweets in the deployment so the user can more easily go to Twitter and reply there.

However, @Erioldoesdesign have a case where it may be useful to keep this functionality, and this is for countries that have twitter/social bans and tracking. In those cases Ushahidi's conversation with author could be important since we might it possible for them to use Twitter without accessing it directly.
