Twitter adds Activity features to keep tabs on those you follow

Facebook News Feed esque service hits Twitter in the form of the Activity tab

Twitter's new Activity tab allows users to monitor follows, favourites and retweets made by their micro-blogging chums

Social networking giant and micro-blogging pioneer Twitter has revamped its site and service introducing a new ‘Activity’ tab allowing users to see a host of information around those they are following and how their Tweets are circulating the service.

The new feature, which is being gradually rolled out across the site’s millions of accounts, highlights a selection of the latest follows, favourites and retweets from those who you follow on the Facebook rival.

Described by Twitter as the ability to “View favorites, follows, retweets and more by people you follow,” the ‘Activity’ tab bears a striking resembalence to the Facebook News Feed which catalogues the actions of friends on the service.

Originally unveiled back in August before being pulled following a small trial the new feature is tasked with increasing interactivity between site’s users.

'It provides a rich new source of discovery by highlighting the latest Favorites, Retweets, and Follows from the people you follow on Twitter – all in one place,' the official Twitter blog read following the service’s original unveiling.

'It's easier than ever to explore Twitter, connect with people, and discover what’s happening around the world.'
