Twitter's Latest Experiment: Self-Explaining Hashtags

Twitter tries out new features all the time – indeed, back in September the company revealed that it’s “rare for a day to go by when we’re not releasing at least one experiment”. Most of these experiments don’t become parts of the core system, and they’re always tested on a small subset of users.

Follow Breaking News On Twitter With Experimental (And Official) @EventParrot Account

Last month Twitter revealed that it tests a least one “experiment” each day – a small feature that it rolls out to a limited subset of users to basically see what happens.
