Twitter Adds Ability To See Other’s Timeline & Gmail Adds People Widget

Did you ever wonder what your favorite SEO’s Twitter timeline looked like? Well, if you did, you can now peak in on someone else’s timeline. For example, check out what Danny’s timeline looks like by going over here. As you can see, Twitter added the ability to see what the 1,801 people on Twitter that Danny follows are “tweeting right now.”

Not only that, Twitter added a neat “Shuffle” feature to randomly jump to other Twitter user’s timelines by clicking on the top right shuffle icon on that page:

Meanwhile, Google announced the people widget for Gmail yesterday. That feature allows you to learn more about the people you are about to send off an email to within Gmail. Google said this people widget helps surface “content from friends, family and colleagues that is already available to you but may be hard to find and makes it easier to connect with them.” This is rolling out over the next couple weeks to all Gmail users.

Here are some screen shots:
