Twitter has made a great change. In account settings, users can now specify that all direct replies to their user account show up in their Twitter timeline, regardless of whether that user is being followed or not by the recipient user.
This is good news, and hopefully will alleviate some of the frustrated conversations I’ve witnessed (mainly at conferences) where new Twitter users can’t converse or even get the attention of other Twitter users they’re messaging, because the other Twitter user isn’t following them.
I’m not sure how long this feature has been available in Twitter, but I just discovered it this evening. Long live Twitter and further improvements to Twitter! 🙂
