Twitter conversations now have their own pop-up window

Long conversations will now make way more sense.

If you participate in Twitter conversations with multiple accounts, you know that once you get past seven replies it can be difficult to keep track of the chat and your dynamic timeline. Today Twitter introduced pop-out conversations. Click on "view conversation" on a tweet on and the thread will appear in its entirety floating above the timeline.

After you're done catching up with the conversation, just click on the "x" or background to get back to your timeline.

The social network also announced that it was rolling out instant access to the Twitter timeline on mobile devices for folks without an account to 23 countries. Previously, you could see a the individual tweet that got you to the service, but getting to the timeline or conversation that lead to that status update was difficult.
