Is this a great or bad thing? Some users are already saying its a hassle with a pop up window. Others say its great for visibility. I personally think its a good thing. Engaging visitors further is key!
Twitter just made a major change to the way tweets appear on its website: clicking on a tweet now opens a separate separate window within your timeline. The window appears for any tweet, but it will also surface replies for tweets that have one or more replies. For now the change only appears to affect tweets in Twitter's website, and it's not clear if the company has plans to expand the feature to its other products.
