Sarah Perez, reporting on what Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said at a panel at the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings:
“It would be nice to see things like a graphic of spikes in the conversation, what time they happened…and be able to scroll back to that time to see what happened at that particular moment,” he said. And for planned events, like televised events, Costolo added that Twitter would like to offer that same functionality to users, even if they’re watching the event on a delayed basis. He described this as being able to “follow along with Twitter in a DVR mode.”
Sounds like an interesting solution to help alleviate this kind of issue.
