Twitter may soon let you follow feeds created by third-party services

Written by admin

On Twitter, in addition to your Home timeline, you can create your own lists or join existing ones – these are customizable feeds that show tweets from curated sources. Twitter also offers a selection of different timelines based on different topics. These methods will help you stay up to date and on top of everything you care about on Twitter, or discover new resources. And now it looks like the social media are planning to increase their feed arsenal by introducing slightly different timelines on their platform. On Twitter help site, tipster Jane Manchun Wong spotted a new page revealing that social media is currently testing a new Custom Timelines feature with select people in the US and Canada on the web version of the platform. However, some of these timelines are not compiled by Twitter or you; they are personalized by third-party services. They are theme specific and can be compiled manually or the system can decide what content to display using information such as search terms, topics, and handles. The new timelines are separated by tabs to make switching between the timelines easier, and you can “adopt” them from a prompt.

For example, you may see a prompt for a timeline for popular videos on the home screen. When you tap the “Add Timeline” button, Twitter will create a new tab next to your home button called “Popular Videos.”

Currently there is no information on when we can expect Twitter to release the new Custom Timelines feature for all of us. There is also the option for Twitter to decide to make the third-party feeds exclusive to its subscription, Twitter Blue. But as it is with these things, time will tell.
