New Twitter Features Encourage More Social Interaction

Twitter introduced some new features that allow users to check who liked their posts and also keep track of the activities of people whom they are following.

The new features became available starting in August. On a blog post, the San Francisco based start-up commented, "You can now see when someone favorites (likes) or retweets one of your Tweets," as reported by the Times Of India.

The post also stated,"You can also learn which Tweets are most interesting and inspiring to the people you follow."

As per Twitter, the roll out was finally completed on Monday. By simply clicking the username on the tabs on the homepage, users can get to see what is happening. The new features also include an "activity" tab that will give updates of what other people the user is following are doing on the service.

On this new "activity" tab the same blog post says, "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," reported the Times of India.
