According to Mashable, Twitter has just introduced a new feature for its users: Hovercards, a new way to access profile information without actually visiting someone’s profile.
In an announcement, Twitter Spokesperson Jenna Sampson discussed how the new feature works:
“Hovercards are cards which appear when you hover over a username or avatar. The cards display additional information about the person and allow you to interact with them while staying within the context of your page.”
This is a great move by Twitter 🙂
