Twitter has meged its "Followed By" and "You Both Follow" features into a new one called "Connections," which allows you to see what users you have in common with other Twitter users. While you still can't see the number of users you have in common, the individual features are now expandable and you can see complete lists of mutual follows and people you're both followed by for any given user, when you click "more."
