Twitter intends to change the platform slightly by adding some new features, including the ability to track interests and view tweets on topics selected by users on the timeline.
The verge announced that when this feature will be available, users will be able to follow topics such as sports teams, celebrities and TV shows.
Rob Bishop, Twitter Product Manager, said The verge that this feature is currently being tested on Android phones and that at the moment you can only track sports-related interests.
The verge he indicated that Twitter wants users to be able to find content that interests them in the best possible way, without having to know which accounts to follow.
The company indicated that topics would be curated on Twitter using machine learning instead of editorial.
Users will also be able to mute topics that do not interest them. Twitter also indicated that if you watch a TV program and have not watched the latest episode, you will be able to hide tweets about this content on your channel. It will of course be perfect for those who do not like spoilers.
Twitter is also intended to help users create separate lists in the application according to their individual interests.
The verge he noticed that other new features that are to appear on the platform include the ability to search for direct messages, change the order of photos in the tweet after they are attached, and add support for live Apple images.
MobileSyrup contacted Twitter Canada to find out when these features will be available to Canadian users.
In the meantime, the company is testing several other functions, such as "Hide answer". The company is looking for feedback from Canadians on this particular aspect of the platform.
The company has also recently updated the desktop user interface.
