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

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.

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.

And I hate to be the one to break it to you, but at some point – hopefully in the distant, distant future – you’re going to leave this mortal coil, too.*
