Twitter has been on a role lately. They have been churning out new features like crazy. The first two features included a much needed search feature and a Gmail contact import feature. Well, now there are even more new things coming to Twitter. TechCrunch reports that tomorrow morning a new set of features are being added to Twitter.
But they are actually functional right now. The new features were available tonight for a short period of time but then were disabled and replaced with a “Launching Soon!” banner.
The features are part of the new Explore section of Twitter, which is sponsered by Motorola. Within Explore, there are tools that allow you to use Twitter with “Other Devices”, but there is more to it than just devices (see screen shot, courtesy of TechCrunch). A very interesting feature called Blocks allows you to interactively navigate through a 3-dimensional animation of twitter updates. I was able to play with it a little bit before it went down. This is a very cool feature and I don’t even use Twitter! And it looks like they will be launching more new features under Explore, judging by the description of the new area: “and watch this space, because even we don’t know what might show up next!” I may reconsider using Twitter with all of the new (an upcoming) features being launched.
