Twitter creates a section of the timeline people will read more closely

Twitter today is unveiling a new Twitter timeline that shows tweets at the top that the service recommends, instead of the most recent tweets. They’re designed to be the best tweets that users may have missed based on what Twitter thinks you care about. Some of the signals that feed that are the tweets you interact with, the topics you’re interested in, and the activity of people who are similar to you. The tweets show up in reverse chronological order in the recommended section

Some drastic moves of Twitter that means even changing the timeline.

Some drastic moves of Twitter that means even changing the timeline.

After enabling the new ‘Show me the best tweets first’ feature in your timeline settings, the tweets you’re most likely to care about will appear at the top of your timeline, still sorted in reverse chronological order. Twitter determines the best tweets you may have missed based on your usage and what the algorithm thinks you care about, including topics you’re into, the tweets you interact with and the activity of people who are similar to you.

Go to twitter.com:

  • Log in to your account on twitter.com and go to the Account settings page.
  • Under Content, look for Timeline and toggle the box next to “Show me the best Tweets first“ to change the setting.
  • Twitter for iOS:
  • Open the mobile Twitterapp on your iOS device.
  • Go to your profile page, tap the gear icon and selectSettings.
  • Tap the account whose settings you’d like to adjust.
  • UnderTimeline, tap Timeline Personalization.
  • Next to“Show me the best Tweets first”, tap to turn it on or off.
