Twitter rolls out ‘Activity Tab’

Twitter recently finished adding the final touches to a more “Facebook-like” interface. Users on Twitter can now see who “likes” their posts and discover what their followers are doing.

In a recent blog post, Twitter said, “You can now see when someone favourites (likes) or retweets one of your Tweets. You can also learn which Tweets are most interesting and inspiring to the people you follow.”

Using the “Activity tab”, users now have the option of viewing any interactions between themselves and their community. The Activity tab began its roll-out in August and finished its completion this week, according to the San Francisco-based social network.

Users should now select the username tabs on home pages if they want to see which of their tweets have been retweeted or replied to. If the user clicks on the activity tab, Twitter knocks out a summary of what their followers have been getting up to.

“It provides a rich new source of discovery by highlighting the latest Favourites, Retweets, and Follows from the people you follow on Twitter — all in one place. It’s easier than ever to explore Twitter, connect with people, and discover what’s happening around the world,” says the official blog post.

The social network has gone from strength to strength in 2011. It passed the 200-million user mark,for instance, with more than 100-million of those users being active. It is also available in a growing number of languages, ranging from standard English to Malaysian, Hindi and Simplified Chinese. The crowdsourced translation centre recently announced that it expected Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish and Hungarian to be added soon.
