Mini Twitter tab Disappeared!? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Search via Address Bar wasn't as big a lure as having the mini tab (saves on tab space, which I thought was great) that would alert to new posts, but that disappeared after initial install & I've found no way to get it back. Previous user's claim of tracking is unsettling as well, so I'm uninstalling & return to 'old fashioned' monitoring of my account. ;)
