Twitter Bulks Up Social Graph With New Realtime Features

Two new sections on Twitter  are going to change the way content is displayed.
Two new tabs will replace the “@Mentions” tab: “@username” and “Activity.” These two tabs will show the social activity around a user and his or her tweets, and will flow in realtime.
