E.g. 
"Paul Smith (psmith) timeline"

I don't know if we should do this...I think it will make the title too long, besides you'd think the name would be your OWN name, which for me means I'd have two different Twitter timelines that start with "Patrick Cloke ("...which is pretty much all of each tab I can read.

That's a good point... I hadn't thought about the tab title, but about the conv_top, and of course they should match.

I still think making use of the full name is a good idea though, especially once we have a way to show other user's timelines as well, though maybe the user's own timelines should always just use the current title. 

How about a format like
"@psmith (Paul Smith) timeline"

Do we still need the word "timeline" here?

I'm asking because I know Jb has been wholeheartedly hating that word, and kept asking that I drop it :). (this was for Thunderbird of course)

It would be nice if we could drop it -- but then we'll eventually need to add something to DM tabs to differentiate them?

I also think we should drop the @ from the title. This is what twitter.com does, and in fact the @ is not part of the nick - it's only used in tweets to label one.
