Twitter rolling out conversations UI, despite the fact that conversations are awful in 140 character
Twitter has quite a few really good uses, but in our opinion, having a conversation on the platform is definitely not one of them. With the abundance of ways to communicate like email, SMS, WhatsApp, etc. or social network options like Facebook and Google+, the idea of having a conversation that is limited to 140 characters (minus the @reply of course) seems ridiculous to us. But, people do it, and for those people, Twitter is rolling out a new conversations UI.

The new UI is just about the smallest change that Twitter possibly could have made. Now, tweets that are part of a conversation will be connected with a blue line. That's really about it. Only three replies will be shown on your home screen, but the blue line will tell you how many other messages there are in the conversation, and you can expand it if you'd like. 

The updated Twitter app has already launched in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store if you'd like to check it out. Of course, the web version of Twitter has also been updated.
