					Twitter Launches Hovercards Feature

Because many of you use to read and write tweets, we've been spending some time
focusing on ways to improve your experience on the site. Today, we're introducing a feature
called Hovercards that will be a handy way to interact with the folks behind each tweet.

On any timeline, as its namesake suggests, Hovercards are cards which appear when you hover
over a username or avatar. The cards display additional information about the person and allow
you to interact with them while staying within the context of your page.

One way we've found these cards to be useful is to find out more about retweeted people and
follow them right there. You can also see more information with an expanded view of the card.

Sending direct messages to people you follow will also be possible with Hovercards so you can
interact with tweeters without having to move off the page.

Hovercards will be rolled out in stages so not all of you will be seeing them right away.
