The Internet-based Twitter interface now offers updated followers and following lists in contacts, adjustable column sizes, sound notifications, the ability to mute and unmute users, location trends, and inline pictures and video previews.
Seesmic detailed the tweaks in a post on the Seesmic Blog:
Manage your followers and who you follow in our recently released Contacts feature. Be able to look through and view all of your relationships on Twitter by reviewing their profile, add them to lists, and easily manage your connections.
By allowing much narrower columns, Seesmic Web will surely become the best friend of your Netbook! Wanted to view more columns simultaneously and they seemed too large? Go to the left side of the screen and choose the width: small or wider!
Missed important tweets because you did not check them in time? Seesmic Web now announces when you’ve received Direct Messages, Replies, or you’ve even sent tweets. Sounds are enabled by default and can be disabled by clicking on the second button of the top right bar.
Ever wanted to hide someone from your Seesmic Web timeline when the tweets might have spoiled your surprise? You can do it now with the Mute feature! Clicking on the user name opens the profile preview, and opting for Mute will exclude all of the user’s tweets only from your Seesmic Web platform. If you changed your mind, you can simply undo the process from Contacts.
Seesmic Web now lets you preview pictures and thumbnails of video directly from the timeline, without clicking on anything. It has never been easier to know what’s behind all of those shortened links! In Seesmic Web, you can adjust sound, replay, or pause the video.
Do you want to know what’s setting trends in certain parts of the world or must-go-to cities? Seesmic Web now allows you the possibility to do it, whether in Europe, the United States or, simply, Worldwide. By going to Trending Topics Location, you can select the city of your choice or region that catches your eye and view the most-talked-about subject.
