New Tweets Feature Live on Twitter

Twitter has a new feature out that I just noticed yesterday!

The new feature shows the number of tweets in your Twitter stream that have posted since you last refreshed your screen or visited your home page.

This “new tweets” feature is similar to the number of new tweets that build up when you search a phrase on the Twitter search engine.

Previously, I thought the “new tweets” feature was only seen by those who have the new retweet functionality, but that’s obviously not the case because my Twitter profile DOES NOT have the new retweet function (yet…)!

Here’s what the new retweet function looks like on my profile. ┬áNow I’m only following 61 people, so the number doesn’t grow very fast:
