Twitter is finally helping its users bypass all of the unwanted tweets and focus on the things they actually want to see. The social platform introduced its new feature Twitter Highlights to iOS on Nov. 1, making it easier to access the best tweets from the people you follow.
Twitter Highlights delivers updates about a favorite celebrity or what's happening among your own group of friends. The new feature works by sending users a notification with a roundup of the best and most popular tweets across the entire platform. “We look at things like accounts and conversations that are popular among people who follow, Tweets from people you’re closely tied to, topics, and events that are trending in your area or within your network, and people that are popular or trending among the people you follow,” Twitter announced in a brief statement on its blog during the feature's initial launch in 2015.
Twitter Highlights was first made available last year to Android users only, but has just recently allowed iOS user access. To run the feature, you must at least have the iOS 6.61. To turn Twitter Highlights on, simply go to the Settings section on your mobile phone and tap the Highlights notifications.
