We know that Twitter can bring these two features. Although we can not say that these two features will work exactly as we have told you here.
If you have noticed, the Presence feature is already available on Facebook. Whenever any of your friends updates a post or comment on Facebook, and if they are online, then you can see a green dot on his/her profile icon. This is what we call the Presence feature. This feature basically shows that who are currently present on the platform.
Moreover, If we talk about reply threading, then in our opinion, you can understand it better through the tweet made by Sarah Haider.
