Twitter is testing a new way to view profiles

a minute read

Twitter has begun testing a new, more convenient way to view profiles on mobile devices. Now users will not need to leave the chronicle if they want to get acquainted with the profile of the person or community of interest.

As part of the test, if a user is mentioned in a tweet, then simply click on his name with an “@” sign and his profile will be shown in a pop-up window.

To return to the previous screen, you need to “swipe” the profile down.

We’re testing an easier way to check out profiles on iOS without leaving your timeline! Simply tap any @ handle in a Tweet, take a peek, follow, and get right back to it. Let us know what you think! pic.twitter.com/dIUFxI2r4C

This small but useful change is designed to improve the user experience and eliminate unnecessary interruptions.

In the current version of Twitter, when you click on the “tagged” user, his profile will be opened in a new window, because of which you can lose the previous screen.

The update is tested in Twitter applications for iOS and Android.
