Twitter’s ‘while you were away’


January 22, 2015

Avid Twitter users will agree that opening your Twitter app after being away for some time can be overwhelming catching up on all of the new tweets. Twitter is coming up with a solution to this problem.

The company is adding a feature designed to recap tweets you may have missed based on your engagement on the app and other user habits called. While they say that this feature is different than the organization of Facebook newsfeeds, many will argue that it is very similar to the way in which Facebook curates posts based on user preferences. The new feature applies only to iOS phones, at the moment, but is expected to reach all phones within the next couple of months.
