MANILA, Philippines – Aside from its recent acquisition of Trendrr Twitter looks to have thrown some additional features on Twitter to make conversations easier to follow on the site.

Available on the web, Android, and Apple Twitter apps, the new conversation mechanism shows tweets in a conversation on your timeline represented with a blue line.

These chronological tweets first show up with as many as 3 tweets, but checking out one of the tweets pulls up the entire conversation for you to read.

Conversations are now also easier to share, with conversations now shareable through email. The same can be done with individual tweets on the iPhone and Android apps.

Twitter’s post on the conversation changes also adds some safety tweaks. Android users will be able to report individual Tweets for abuse or spam directly the Android Twitter app and the website. This is a gradual rollout for both that is already available for the Twitter iPhone application. –
