A well known security expert Mikko Hypponen noticed a new feature on Twitter, and did what most people do when they see something out of the ordinary, he tweeted about it. Called “embedded on these websites,” this simple feature shows users the websites on which a popular tweet has been featured on. Users can click on the websites listed below the tweet to open them up and read the story in which that particular tweet was featured. This will help users keep tracks of an entire story behind the original tweet.
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo recently said that the service wanted to make it easier for users to either track and monitor an event as it happens, or to catch up with it later. This new feature certainly seems to be based on that idea, not only will it make it easier to get to know the whole story that obviously can’t be told in 140 characters, it will also make curating content that much easier. Twitter hasn’t officially said when it plans on rolling out this new feature to all of its users.
