Twitter takes away, brings back random @replies
In early 2009, Twitter tweaked how one of its key features worked, and no longer displaying @ replies from people who users weren't following. Users were miffed by the change, which they argued was a core part of how they discovered other people using the service.
After enough heat from users, Twitter brought the feature back and said they were working on a better way to deal with replies.
