A new Twitter experiment shares favorites and follows in others’ Twitter streams as if they were retweets – and a vocal group of users aren’t too thrilled about the idea.

Honestly, this change isn't great for personal users, but for small business users it could probably be a nice exposure booster since even simply favoriting one of your tweets will now expose it to all of that user's followers.

So, Twitter wants to keep everyone on “tabs” of what’s going on? ;)

The favorite feature (star) is often used as a bookmark for Twitter users. When will Twitter spend some more time on the search function and let us avid users of the service be able to follow new tweeps, after reaching the so-called Twitter follow limit?

I can see why some users have a problem with it. It does seem a bit intrusive. But then, it's not much different to what Facebook does with its news feed - plus there's the ticker.
