Twitter intros Highlights, the best tweets for you delivered via push notifications
If you’re like me, you easily get overwhelmed with your Twitter feed when you neglect to check it for more than a few hours. That’s why today, Twitter introduced a new feature called Highlights. Available only in English on Android devices, Highlights are topics that your close Twitter friends are currently talking about, delivered straight to your notification shade without the need to open the app.
So, if your close friends are talking about a certain event that happened in your area or a sporting event that’s on television, you’ll be notified via a push notification. Twitter explains:
To create your Highlights, we look at things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among people you 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 people you follow.
Highlights are now available in the settings menu of your stock Twitter app (sorry, third party Twitter app users). To turn the feature on, select your account handle and scroll down until you see the Highlights box. Once that box is checked, let Twitter begin collecting relevant information, and you should see your very own Highlights in no time.
