Twitter activity stream

Back in August we heard about the upcoming real time twitter activity streams but, since then, not many of us have seen them.

Today, I was lucky to observe this functionality in  one of the twitter accounts I admin.

See how the mentions tab has changed? It is not just Mentions anymore. It is “mentions and more” and the more refers to in-stream notifications of who and how-many followed you.

Also, twitter turns more visual, if you look at the adjacent Activity tab.

This is a much more ‘facebookish’ view, isn’t it? It is actually more visual than the respective ticker in Facebook, which displays similar stuff: favs, follows, RTs etc

I wonder if the delay in the roll out has to do with exactly this perception: that twitter is becoming more ‘lite’ this way.
