Twitter Changes “Following” and “Followers” pages

It seems today that if you view the “Following” or “Followers” pages for a
user (including yourself) some interesting new tidbits will come up.

For example, you
have the option to either view in a list or expanded list format, where previously you could only view in
expanded.

title="following_1" border="0" alt="following_1"

You also have two nifty buttons.  One
allowing you to add the user featured, and the other giving you multiple options.

In the screen shot above, you can see the
options to Mention, Follow, and Block.  However, if you’re already following the user you’ll also
get the option to Unfollow.

All in all, it looks like these are some nifty changes by
twitter to help expand your social graph.
