Last March, Twitter unveiled an update on iPhone which revealed an experiment it was conducting when it came to watching television and interacting with it live.

The experiment, called TV Timelines, sees a new interface when it came to certain programs, including the Fox reality competition American Idol and the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory. According to a report from the technology news web site Mashable, the conversation is shown surrounding a particular show, as well as any other highlights and media associated with it.

It is unclear if this will expand to other programs or be made available to international users. Reached by email, Elizabeth Luke, a spokeswoman for Twitter, said the social network had nothing to share regarding the TV timelines.
