Twitter Now Ranks Conversations Based On Who Replies

I want to ask all you Twitter users out there, is this something you guys really want? What was wrong with messages being in chronological order? It sure just seems like Twitter spends all its time and resources working on stupid stuff while ignoring the real stuff that matters. Bah! What do I know?

Threaded conversations are some of the best interactions you can have on Twitter -- with dozens of users chattering away 140 characters at a time. Unless you're already in a conversation, however, it can be hard to tell if a tweet is getting a lot of social interaction. Now, it's a little easier: Twitter has added a reply counter and a 'conversation ranking' to its mobile apps designed to push the most relevant discussions to the top of a tweet thread.
