Twitter brings Activity Centred Enhancements

Microblogging platform Twitter has introduced a couple of brand new activity centred features on Wednesday as a partial modification to its web application.

The modifications are basically designed to assist users in discovering the latest happenings on the site that can potentially influence them. They will come in the form of two new tabs- “username” and “activity”.

"Today, we're rolling out two new features on that help you discover more on Twitter," Twitter said in an official blog post.

"You can now see when someone favourites or retweets one of your Tweets. You can also learn which Tweets are most interesting and inspiring to the people you follow," it added.

The activity tab is designed to provide users with the similar offering as Facebook does through its News Feed. It will basically showcase three primary actions - favourites, follows and retweets.

“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,” the company revealed about the Activity tab in the official Twitter Blog.

Reports about this feature did surface earlier this week, but there was no solid evidence of this enhancement untill now.
