New Twitter Feature Lets You See the World in Different Angle

Twitter's new feature lets you see not only who your friends are following, but what is also posted on their own profile.

Twitter just recently rolled out its new feature that enables users the view the world in another perspective. Just like its scrapped With Friends attribute two years ago, the new feature lets users see their friends’ recent tweets from users they’re following. In other words, users can see Twitter the way their tweeps sees it. Though this change may seem small, it philosophically implies empathy and privacy.

Seeing the online world through other people’s perspective is a unique way of news consumption. And while Facebook is great at connecting people around the world, its different privacy foundation can’t allow its users to the see the world through other people’s eyes. That is where Twitter is well positioned to do.

However, it may have very interesting consequence. Do you think this new Twitter feature is just a user boon or bane? Drop your opinions at the comments below.
