Don’t you think it’s annoying to read all the reply tweets on a Twitter profile? Yes, I do too. And guys at Twitter as well. When you visit a Twitter user’s profile, you may want to read original content rather than conversations.
Since June 2012, when you visit some verified profiles, you’ll see their tweets without replies. That is, you won’t see tweets that begin with a @username. But you can always switch to all tweets.
By the way, tweets beginning with a @username are only seen by people who follow both the tweet author and the @username at the beginning of the tweet. Let’s hope we’ll see this features on every profile then!
