Twitter adds Facebook-like features to your timeline

Twitter is ramping up its social media aspects, by adding a couple of features that are very Facebook-ish.

The first of which, the Activity tab - which will appear on your top-line - is a bit like your news feed on FB. It gives you an overview of what's going on with your Twitter contacts.

It lets you know who your followers and followees are now following and also provides a quick follow button for you to add those people too, should you wish, and there's also details of tweets your contacts have favourited and retweeted.

The @username tab, the other new addition, gives you a quick glimpse on what's been happening with your tweets - who's commented, retweeted, favourited and the like. It also shows you your new followers and details any lists that you may have been added to.

Twitter states that the new features are rolling out now - there's no sign of them yet on our page, so it's probably a roll-out starting Stateside.
