Twitter, Show Conversation

At first I thought I stumbled on a new feature from Twitter but now I’m just feeling relieved that I missed something really big, a sign I’m doing okay with my Twitter usage behavior. Anyway, stop telling me that you wish Twitter had a mechanism for following threaded conversations and I’ll stop telling you I wish it did too because it does indeed have it.

For example, click a “Show Conversation” link as seen in the image above and there ya go as seen below:

The feature is there and implemented in the search returns. The question is simply, when will Twitter include this “Show Conversation” link to the bottom of each individual tweet no matter where it is on Twitter? Adding this one link would blow the roof off in terms of the value this would have on the users & the audience. So close, yet so…?
