Twitter can probably make it easy for strangers to remove unwanted attention or to make a new friendship. Twitter is testing its new feature called Profile Previews in its iOS app. As this new feature will allow users to look more about the user without taking you away from your timeline. If you are already included in the Profile Preview test, tapping on a user’s @handle in a tweet will display a card with the basic information about the user and also offers you an option to follow or mute them. Either you can return to your normal web browsing or either you can watch their full and detailed profile if you need more details or information about the user.
At present, whenever we tap on someone’s profile or you can say @handle in a tweet, you will directly be transmitted to the user’s Twitter profile. This puts you out of something that you were reading and makes it easy to drop an irrelevant nonsensical situation.
After this feature is implemented, whenever you tap or click on any user’s handle, you will see a pop- up menu. It will give you many options such as you can view the user’s bio, profile photo, and as well as will give you the option to follow the user instantly. And also have an option which let user’s to quickly jump to the user’s full profile.
Once you have done with the pop-up card, this new feature will return the user to where he has left or you can say rebound to wherever you were on your timeline.
