Twitter responses

A small design change that could save users a lot of time

As a Twitter user, I find it imperative that a tweet must display an indication of the number of responses as it does with retweets and favorites in the condensed tweet view.

On July 8th, 2015 NYSE trading was halted. By seeing the following tweet I get that there are at least 2 people interested in the question, but how many people have responded?

Would’t it be much better if it was like

The number of responses is a totally different metric than favs and retweets. For example one can easily spot controversial tweets and know beforehand if a tweet needs to be expanded or not.

Especially on mobile devices where you have to open a tweet and then go back, this little trick could save a lot of time within the day.
