PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The folks at Twitter want to make it easier to discover and follow conversations in your timeline. So they have rolled out an update for their iPhone and Android apps, as well as Twitter.com.
When browsing your Twitter stream, some tweets will now be connected with a blue line, letting you know they’re part of a conversation. The idea is to make it easier to follow conversations on Twitter as they happen in real-time.
Users will now be able to see full conversations between people they follow in their timeline as opposed to standalone @replies.
This is a major update to the way that Twitter works and is essential to getting a wider demographic on a social network.
The update also allows you share conversations via email, as well as the ability to share individual tweets by email on either iPhone or Android.
