Twitter introduces new Highlights feature

Twitter can be great, but it can also be a chore sometimes depending on how many people you follow and how active they are. Trying to catch up on a 1000 or more tweets in the morning can put you off in the long run, so Twitter is trying to make it easier, introducing ‘Highlights’, to give you a summary of your day.

To give you your highlights reel, Twitter takes a few things into account when building it. There’s some thought to really personalise it to you:

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 is opt-in so you won’t be bombarded if you don’t want it. Twitter has enabled Hightlights for English speaking Twitter users on Android, but to enable it you have to go to your settings menu and enable push notifications, then go to your mobile notifications menu and tick the ‘Highlights’ box.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
