Twitter testing new pop-up design to quickly view profile details on iOS

Twitter iOS

Twitter has announced that it is testing the ability to check profiles on iOS without leaving your timeline. To access a profile while scrolling through the timeline, simply tap any @handle in a Tweet, take a peek and scroll right back.

With this change, you can now get a quick glimpse at another user’s profile without having to fully visit their account page and leave your timeline. Currently, when you tap on someone’s @handle in a tweet, you’ll be taken directly to the person’s profile. This change will show a slick pop-up menu where you can view the user’s bio, profile picture, as well as follow them instantly. There’s also a button to quickly jump to the person’s full profile.

Once you are done peeking through the profile from the pop-up card, you can simply swipe down and return to where you were on your timeline. Twitter says it’s currently testing this new design, so it’s unclear when it might be available to everyone.
