Twitter is testing new features for users on iOS. This feature can make it easier for users to see someone’s profile. Precisely, profile preview on iOS can show more user profiles without having to open the timeline further.
Reporting from the Engadget page , Thursday (02/14/2019), if you are part of this trial, users can view someone’s profile by hovering over @name without opening it.
Then Twitter will give you the option to follow or mute them. So you can go back to your browsing or see their full profile if you need further details.
“We are testing an easier way to check profiles on iOS without leaving your timeline! Just tap any @ handle on the Tweet, peek, follow, and go back to it. Tell us what you think !, “Twitter said on his official account.
