Engadget: Twitter tests conversation ‘subscriptions’

Engadget: Twitter tests conversation ‘subscriptions’. “Twitter is testing yet another new feature: a ‘subscribe to conversation’ button that would let users follow a thread without liking or replying to it. Twitter user and software engineer Jane Manchun Wong (who’s known for finding this kind of thing) discovered the prototype in the Android version of the app. In response to her tweet about it, Twitter said this is an attempt to make the platform more conversational. It’s now the latest in a flood of changes we’ve seen from Twitter.”
