Twitter, on Wednesday, announced new changes to the online social media platform, in an effort to increase user experience. Over the last couple of months, Twitter has been experiencing a slow user growth and these changes have been made keeping in mind with what users expect from this platform. Here are the improvisations announced by Twitter!
Twitter’s expanding the “Happening Now” feature by enabling instant notifications for sports fans by giving people the scores and game updates instantaneously. This feature also includes customised news and personalized news surfaced to the top of a user’s timeline.
Earlier, Twitter’s explore tab was organised according to the content you wanted. With the new updates, the social media tool is looking at changing this tab to topic wise. The platform is experimenting with topic tabs for a more customized news experience.
Up until now, users were able to go through the moments with a horizontal swipe. Now, with the updates, users can navigate through the moments with a vertical swipe. Furthermore, the platform is adding another feature called “recap timeline.” This feature shows things like the tweets you missed, the latest tweets, as well as the top commentary when it’s available. If there is a live video, you can see it in the recap timeline. These features are not just restricted to the sports and games and are going to be branched out into other things!
From today, users will get related news, events and Stories at the top of their list. Moving away from the superficial front Twitter previously had, users can now delve deeper into their favourite topics right from the very beginning.
“If someone uses Twitter all the time, they’ll have a perfectly curated timeline,” Twitter spokesperson Liz Kelley said in a statement. “But if you don’t have those things in place, there’s maybe a better way for us to present that.” Twitter is working towards making the customer its king and with these tweaks, the steps seem to be in the right direction!
