With Twitter’s new feature,Topics, things will improve for Twitteratis.
Twitter’s audience and the social media platform itself has been very different from others. The Twitter family, unlike the Facebook community, is much more knowledgeable and socially aware. Instead of filling up the platform with memes, Twitter is profoundly known for its stand on social issues and public awareness.
However, all of the factors might have made Twitter different from others but on the other hand, these factors have also affected the overall user engagement in the social media platform.
To enhance the user experience and increase engagement on the platform, the company came up with a new idea. The idea to bring relevancy through topics for users in one place has proven to be pretty beneficial for social media platforms, like Instagram.
Similar to ‘Instagram tags’ on Explore Feed, Twitter is about to launch its new feature called, Topics.
What Change Will Twitteratis Find After Debut of New Feature; “Topics”
The much talked about feature will make the social media platform relevant to its different kinds of users.
The feature launching this week on November 13, will allow users to know more about their topic of interest through relevant tweets. For instance, if you want to know what happened in Sports lately, the feature will take you all the tweets tweeted on sports.
According to Verge, the feature will let people know about more than 300 areas of interest. Yep, you heard that right. Not 10 or 20 but 300 topics for you to collect relevant information about.
However, there is still one topic that Twitter decided to not include in ‘Topics’ currently.
Twitter is Going Topical But Not Political with Topics:
The feature about to be introduced at the social media platform has hundreds of topics of people’s interest, but still one of the most searched topics will remain out of the list. And that is POLITICS.
Yes, you heard it right. Twitter differentiated from other social media platforms based on its political activeness has decided to keep its new feature ‘politics-free.’
This might be the result of Twitter CEO’s latest announcement regarding banning the publishing of political ads and campaigns on Twitter. In his statement regarding Twitter’s stance on keeping social media free from politics, he said that the reach of political messages should be eared instead of being bought online.
To sum it all up, we believe that Twitter’s new feature called “topics” will surely make Twitter a more interesting place for the users.
