tweet-conversationsIf you are an avid Twitter user and you’re wondering why your conversations look a little different, it is because Twitter has rolled out some changes to the feature in which they will now rank conversations based on who replies, as opposed to from before where conversations were shown in chronological order.

According to Twitter, “You may notice that some replies in a conversation are not shown in chronological order. Replies are grouped by sub-conversations because we strive to show you the best content first, and what we think you’d be most interested in.” So how does Twitter rank conversations? Basically it is now based on who is replying, where priority is given to the tweet’s author or if it is a reply from someone to follow.

If this feature sounds familiar, it is because it seems to follow a feature that Instagram introduced a while ago in which likes on photos will show names of people that you follow, and comments on photos will show up in the feed if that comment is made by someone you follow or someone the poster follows themselves.

In addition, Twitter has also announced that they will be adding a reply counter in which you can now see how many replies there are to a tweet, so if you’re looking for one that’s particularly commented on, this will help.
