Twitter on Wednesday announced new features that will help users sort and view tweets. A new tab titled "Activity," located under the site's tweet box, will give the user a look at tweets that friends are favoriting or retweeting; another tab, which bears the user's Twitter handle (formerly called the @Mentions tab), will let the user see which of her tweets are being favorited or retweeted.
