Twitter has introduced a new timeline feature that helps user catch up on your missed and best tweets from people they follow on the microblogging service.
Mike Jah, Twitter’s Senior Engineering Manager says, ”you follow hundreds of people on Twitter, maybe thousands and when you open Twitter, it can feel like you’ve missed some of their most important Tweets.”
But now the home time line feature will give you the access to see your best tweets first when you might have missed them.
Here’s how it works. You flip on the feature in your settings; then when you open Twitter after being away for a while, the Tweets you’re most likely to care about will appear at the top of your timeline – still recent and in reverse chronological order.
The rest of the Tweets will be displayed right underneath, also in reverse chronological order, as always. At any point, just pull-to-refresh to see all new Tweets at the top in the live, up-to-the-second experience you already know and love.
”We’ve already seen that people who use this new feature tend to Retweet and Tweet more, creating more live commentary and conversations, which is great for everyone”, Twitter says.
To check it out now, just go into the timeline section of your settings and choose ‘Show me the best Tweets first’.
”We think this is a great way to get even more out of Twitter and we’re excited for you to experience it”, he adds.
