Twitter CEO Explains How (And Why) Random Favorites Are Appearing in Your Timeline

Twitter CEO Explains How (And Why) Random Favorites Are Appearing in Your Timeline

Last month Twitter started experimenting with showing favorites to some users from the accounts that they follow – that is, when their friends favorited a tweet, some of those favorites started to show up in their timeline.

The move wasn’t popular, and the reaction became even more severe when the experiment became an actual feature. Subsequently, Twitter updated its policy to better explain “What’s a Twitter timeline?” – specifically, it’s now a place where they (Twitter) can add content to your timeline that it deems popular or relevant.

Twitter Adds New Features For Verified Users (Average Joes Need Not Apply)

Twitter started verifying users back in 2009, largely to combat the problem of impostor accounts and to establish the authenticity of key individuals and brands on the platform. It’s a fairly simple system that (bar one or two hiccups) works: any account with a blue verified badge on their Twitter profile is a verified account.
