New Twitter Now Showing Full Conversations In The Side Pane

12 hours agoA couple days ago, we noted that Twitter was back on the new fture charge with the new People ar they’re testing out. Well, make it two-for-two, as yesterday they rolled out another new fture — one that many users have been asking for since New Twitter was unveiled: full conversation thrds.
Yes, if you click on a tweet with the chat bubble icon, you’ll see the detail of what that tweet was responding to in the right pane of New Twitter. Previously, you could only see one level deep into the conversation. But now, Twitter will show you an entire back and forth (assuming the users responded using the “reply” button ch time). And depending on where you hop in to the conversation, you’ll see all the “in reply to” message above, the tweet you clicked on in the middle, and the “replies” below in this pane.
This is a much sier way to follow conversations on Twitter, and it’s something that the standalone Twitter Srch product has had for some time. Several third-party clients offer thisfunctionalityas well (as do Twitter’s mobile apps). But this is yet another rson not to lve
Back in June, we noted that Twitter had hired the crtor of the app Twitoaster, which was interesting since that app specialized in surfacing conversations on Twitter. No word on if that played a roll in this roll-out. I’m just glad it’s here.
