What's a Twitter Timeline? It's a Place Where we Can Put Anything we Want, Says Twitter

Earlier this week we reported on news that Twitter has started showing favourites to some users from the accounts that they follow. That is, when their friends favourite a tweet, some of them show up in their timeline.

We’ve also noted how Twitter has been showing tweets from accounts that their friends follow to some users.

Twitter released its second quarter earnings report last week to much fanfare, and rightly so, as the figures beat Wall Street expectations across the board.

The most closely-watched metric in Twitter’s report was, as usual, its monthly active users (MAUs) tally, which has now reached 271 million. However, buried deep in the presentation that accompanied the release was a worrying statistic: 14 percent of Twitter accounts log on or connect to the service via third party apps, which means that close to 40 million of its active users are never served ads.
