Twitter just recently rolled out a “new” feature that let’s you see through the eyes of the people you follow. We say “new” because twitter used to have this feature years ago, but decided to discontinue when they found out not a lot of people back then were interested in using it.
But today, again, when clicking on the “Following” link on any users page, you will be able to see the twitter home feed from their point of view and see the tweets of people they follow. It’s basically you seeing someone else’s live timeline the way they would see it when they sign in to twitter.
Here’s an example of how to see Pete Cashmore’s @mashable timeline:
Just look for the following tab on the user’s main page. Following > View as timeline
Then voila! You’re practically Pete Cashmore.
This is a great option for those who are looking to explore the twitterverse through the lens of the people they already follow. Let’s say you’re curious about someone who’s got tens of thousands of followers, but he’s only following a select few. When you click on his or her “following” link, you will be able to see the tweets of the select few that he or she follows. But of course you still won’t be able to see the tweets from users with a protected account. This is a good way for discovering the people that interest your very own “twitter crush” so to speak.
The feature isn’t available to everybody yet but you can expect to see it in a few days.
