If a user searches for a username that is found in the mosaic, they are unable to move the cursor away and see any other tweets for a long time [at least 10 seconds]- longer than a tweet would normally display as it was popping up. This is a strange experience for the user. After a set period of time the cursor moves normally again. 1) search for a username that is in the mosaic > view their tweet 2) after reading, move mouse to see more tweets > Unable to see new tweet bubbles until at least 10+ seconds have passed
Hi. It's an intentional behaviour (the said timeout allows user to interact with bubble, otherwise it would disappear as soon as the pointer hovered any other tile) but it definitely needs taking care of since it stands as a usability block for the use case you described.
Fixed as described in Comment 1
Verified able to read tweet and then move on- the user experience is tons better!
We're all happy faces around here when we hear such things.
