To know what is buzzing in the Twitter world, you have to either like or reply on a thread to get the updates. Now, Twitter is looking at changing that to make the platform more 'conversational'.

Twitter tipster Jane Manchun Wong has unearthed a 'subscribe to conversation' feature, confirmed by the microblogging site, that allows one to get notifications about an active thread without having to like or reply on it, Engadget reported. Twitter aims to make the micro blogging site more conversational with the new feature, the report added.

The new tool is located to the top right corner of threads. Users can tap on it to enable the subscription. After that, any new tweet added to thread will be notified to the user. This feature is currently available for users in the beta version of the Android app. Twitter hasn't confirmed if this feature will be rolled out for all users in the future.
