If your profile is still set up to receive email messages whenever somebody new starts to follow you on Twitter, then you know that the social service provides a couple of short lists that attempt to tie you to your new friend: Three accounts that you both follow, that sort of thing. A new service that Twitter just launched carries that idea over to the site. For example, if I visit the profile of my newest follower, @laurenleto (co-founder of Texts From Last Night!), I can now see that we both follow fifteen of the same accounts (@theatavist, @RL_Stine -- don't judge me -- and others). Give it a try.
A similar feature was launched, and then pulled in the past. This version appears to be an evolution of the last- with a more fleshed out approach. I think this is an awesome addition to Twitter.
Check it out by visiting a friend's profile. While it doesn't provide total numbers yet of shared connections, it does allow you to pull up complete lists of who follows both of you and who you both follow by clicking the "more" button. Once you click "more" you will have the option to pull up other lists such as "Followers You Follow" and people you both follow. Although, Twitter's new feature doesn't appear to be complete yet, as I know for a fact that several mutual Twitter handles are missing from tests I ran on friend's profile. Anyone else experiencing this? Please share in the comments.
