A new feature is being tested at the moment by Twitter and it will soon come out when its ready. This is somewhat going to be like the posts on Facebook groups and their aim will be to show the users exactly how many times their tweets were seen by others. Though this might prove to be useful for some, it might actually become a source of depression for some when they will realise that not enough people seemed to care about what they had written.
Some Twitter users have reported that a new "# views" item appears beneath the content of one's post and this only seems to be the case for those who are using the official Twitter app on iOS. For all other platforms and devices the view count currently appears to be an exclusive test only. Some of you might be noticing the lack of details here but thats what it is; there arent enough details on the new app and the reveal was rather a stealthy one at that. It still remains a question whether this new counter addition is going to be a permanent thing or a temporary one. However, the feature does allow the users to get their hands on some information and this might also be a tactic by Twitter to encourage more users to post more tweets.
