And both of them, it seems, are currently bent on revamping the whole experience generated via both the sites. Now the recent one to jump into that bandwagon is Twitter with new changes applied to the website.

Recently after announcing the picture-filled web profiles for all users, according to reports, the company is now looking to add quicker interaction-based options with real-time pop-up notifications for its web experience.
