Twitter has just released an update for iOS, Android and the web application with a brand new interface for conversations, as well as enhanced sharing and abuse reporting capabilities. According to the official blog post, the idea is to make it easier to follow and discover conversations.
With the updates, users will see full conversations between people they follow in their timeline as opposed to standalone @replies that may be sent hours or even days after the original tweet (the conversation starter) was sent.
This always allowed for strange, context-free tweets in the consumption experience, but with the new update users will have a bit more understanding of what's being tweeted back in forth in a conversation.
Conversations are shown with a blue vertical line between them, with the first tweet in a conversation appearing on top, chronologically. If there are more than two replies, you can click into the blue line to see all the replies in that conversation.
