Twitter for iOS update brings a new way to look at conversations

Twitter for iOS update brings a new way to look at conversationsTwitter today rolled out an update to its iOS app which introduces a new way for users to view conversations.

Under the new conversation scheme, conversations between people you follow are connected via a blue line. The aim here is to make it easier to keep track of conversations of interest in what can often be a flurry of Twitter activity.

Twitter writes:

As you can see, Tweets that are part of a conversation are shown in chronological order so it's easier for you to follow along. You'll see up to three Tweets in sequence in your home timeline; if you want to see more, you can tap a Tweet to see all the replies, including those from people you don't follow. We will start rolling this out to everyone today.

Note that the first tweet in a conversation will appear first, even if it was sent hours previously.

Twitter today also put out the following video highlighting the new changes:

The full changelog reads:

• A blue line indicates a conversation between people you follow.

• The first Tweet in the conversation now appears above the most recent reply.

• Tap to see all of the replies.

This release also includes various other improvements:

• New notification settings.

• Bug fixes for direct messages, login verification and more.
