real-time comments are the display of comments on a view of a post (typically on its permalink) as they are received by the post (presumably via webmention), without needing any explicit user reloading, refreshing, or any other tapping/clicking etc.

Real-time comments are one of several real-time interactions.

Twitter, as of their mid-2014 front-end redesign, now supports (sometimes) showing real-time comments on tweet permalinks:
