Conversations on Twitter can be difficult to follow. In fact, even Jack Dorsey, CEO and co-founder of the company believes so, and has described the conversations in his social network as difficult to follow. Twitter does not organize conversations in an easy way, and the more users participate in one, the more everything becomes entangled.

“Twitter users on iOS can see a floating preview of a profile by clicking on the username.”

Therefore, from Twitter are working on ways to correct this problem. The social network is testing a kind of preview of the profiles that works like a pop-up window. Without this, when you are following a conversation on Twitter and clicking on the profile of a user, we leave the thread to access the profile, interrupting the reading.

In this way, the new function will allow to see the followers, the accounts followed, the date of entry into the social network and the bio of a user without having to leave the page in which it is. This function will be present both in the main timeline and in the threads.

The option also contains a button to access the full profile and a button to start following it without having to visit the profile. You can see the live feature in this GIF that has tweeted the official account of the social network:

It is a minor change, but certainly quite useful when navigating in tortuous threads with hundreds of answers. At the moment, this function is being tested in the version of the social network on iOS, but from the company they say that it will soon arrive for all Android users in the form of a test, to be later released to all users.
