Twitter wants to remain ahead of the social networking game by offering a couple of new features on their service as part of their Web-application redesign. One of them would be the Activity Tab introduction, where the changes will help users discover just what the heck is happening in their immediate Twitterverse, where you can check it out in two new tabs on Twitter.com: “@[username]” and “Activity.” The former tab will see off the mentions tab, and will function as a personal notifications dashboard. This tab will now see the inclusion of tweets that directed at users via @replies (as usual), where it will also highlight favorited tweets and retweeted tweets, being inclusive of new follower notifications.
Basically, the Activity Tab’s purpose is somewhat a clone of Facebook’s News Feed. It will show off similar actions, ranging from retweets to favorites and follows, but according to individuals whom you have decided to follow, of course.
According to Twitter, “It provides a rich new source of discovery by highlighting the latest Favorites, Retweets, and Follows from the people you follow on Twitter – all in one place. It’s easier than ever to explore Twitter, connect with people, and discover what’s happening around the world.”
How do you find this revamp, and do you take a fancy to it?
