Twitter @ Replies, Neither Here Nor There

Yesterday was a very interesting day for Twitter. In short, Twitter removed the ability to see @ replies. Then they brought it back but in a limited fashion. The Twitter blog explained:

We're making a change such that any updates beginning with @username (that are not explicitly created by clicking on the reply icon) will be seen by everyone following that account.

Read that a few times. Neither here nor there.

Well, you might be able to see people who @ reply you or maybe not, it depends. That is why you might want to conduct a Twitter Search for your name and subscribe to the results via RSS. I do for both @seroundtable and @rustybrick (feel free to follow both).

To catch up on the Twitter action over the past 24 hours, TechCrunch posted a quality summary of what took place.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld and make sure to follow @seroundtable and @rustybrick on Twitter.
