TweetBubble subtly transforms the Twitter interface to enable users to explore networks of content referenced through @ user handles and #hashtags without switching back and forth across tabs and windows. Users can see the big picture of who is connecting with whom, and keep on track when following conversations. TweetBubble can make Twitter more effective and engaging for occasional and expert Twitter users, right now. The public release is aimed at demonstrating how fluid interfaces can help people understand, work with, and think about complex information, and provoke design of better interfaces to connected information networks. Developers who want to build on TweetBubble can access the open source TweeBubble code on GitHub.
