What’s happening? Is what we are usually asked when visiting Twitter.com, to get the conversation started, but something is “happening” to twitter that is worth talking about this time. On August 10th 2011, Twitter began rolling out its latest features, two to be exact. The first new feature lets users see when someone retweets or favorites one of their Tweets and the second feature highlights the latest Retweets, Follows, and Favorites from followers, located all in one convenient place.
It seems the popular micro-blogging site, Twitter, has been playing hide-n-go seek with our tweets. Twitter has been experimenting with a new feature that hides excessive tweets from followers, with the option to click on a link that allows users to “show all” of the tweets that were hidden. The actual date of when this began is still unknown. At this current time, it is being tested with only a small percentage of users, which may explain why most of us have yet to see it; and it is still unclear as to when it will to roll out to everyone.
