I spend much more time in FB than Twitter, but just noticed the "View Summary" function. Nice, but yeah, Facebook-like.

re: Twitter Intros Facebook-Style Conversation Feature
I think people enjoy Twitter because it is NOT like Facebook. That said, improving the "View Conversations" tool is much needed; that system was not user-friendly. I don't know how I feel about the capability to share conversations with non-friends, and I wouldn't use it. Other than that, I think Twitter should avoid a focus that tries to be more like Facebook; both serve separate purposes for users.
