Twitter on mobile is now ranking what it feels are the most important parts of a conversation higher than the original tweet. It'll also show reply counts


[support.twitter.com...]

If that works properly we might be able to see the best replies, however, we'll have to wait to see how that looks before passing judgement.

I hope it doesn't work out like on Youtube where it is sometimes difficult to find answer/reply pairs in the stream because entries are rearranged based on their popularity. More than the comment section on Youtube, Twitter is a two-way communication platform where understanding the flow of a conversation is important.
