Twitter is testing a feature that would make it easier to check out an account without leaving your timeline. 

The social network said Wednesday that a small portion of iOS users can now tap any handle in a tweet to see a preview of an account. From there, they can choose to tap “follow,” then jump right back to their timeline. 

        </figure>"We want you to know who is behind the accounts that appear on your timeline," the company <a href="" target="_blank" data-component="externalLink" rel="noopener">tweeted</a>. "With this experiment, we're working to make it easier to learn who is behind an account."

A Twitter representative said the experiment will roll out to Android users soon.
