Recommended Tweets From Profiles You Don’t Follow Will Now Appear in Everyone’s Timeline

Recommended Tweets From Profiles You Don't Follow Will Now Appear in Everyone's Timeline

Twitter loves to experiment with new features and tools. Many of these add-ons never make it out of the beta stage, and are only ever shown to a small subset of users who test the functionality while Twitter measures the response. Sometimes, however, these experiments go on to become core features.

Remember the stink that was caused when Twitter started showing favorites and other tweets in timelines from people that weren’t being followed? Good news! That’s now a permanent feature.

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.

We’ve also noted how Twitter has been showing tweets from accounts that their friends follow to some users. Both of these updates are being tested on the usual small subset of profiles in Twitter’s everyday experiments, and they work in much the same way that retweets from people you follow appear in your feed.

People hate change, but it really feels like everybody hates these changes from Twitter. But here’s the thing: Twitter doesn’t care.

New From Twitter: Promoted Account Ads In Mobile Timelines

New From Twitter: Promoted Account Ads In Mobile Timelines

Launched back in 2010, Twitter’s Promoted Accounts advertising tool is, in my opinion, the most effective way to drive relevant followers to a profile on the platform.

Why? It works. End of. You only get charged when somebody actually follows you (the impressions are free), and the more you spend, the more followers you get.

Major New Twitter Feature: Create Multiple Custom Timelines

Major New Twitter Feature: Create Multiple Custom Timelines

Twitter has introduced the ability to create custom timelines.

Now you can organize tweets into differentiated timeline buckets based on, say, an event or a topic. You name the timeline, and choose the tweets you want to add to it – by hand or programmatically using the API.

The difference between a custom timeline and a Twitter list is that you can tailor and craft the content to your liking, adding or removing tweets a la carte.

Each custom timeline is public, has its own page on Twitter.com so you can easily share it, and is even embeddable on any website.

The catch is here that you have to create, add to and share custom timelines from TweetDeck.

The Story Of Twitter (Told In 140 Seconds) [VIDEO]

Did you know that half a billion tweets are sent and received around the world each and every day?

#TwitterIPO Timeline (2006-13) [INFOGRAPHIC]

Twitter’s IPO took place earlier today and, so far at least, it’s been a big success. The stock saw a nice 73 percent pop on the opening and while it hasn’t quite scaled the $70-80 heights that some analysts were predicting, its current levels of $45/$46 gives Twitter a market capitalisation of some $25 billion.

You’ll Soon Be Able To Download ALL Of Your Tweets Directly From Twitter

One of Twitter’s best features is its search functionality, but it’s always been plagued by one major problem – you can’t search back more than seven days.

That’s useful when all you care about is what’s happening now (or, at least, very recently), but what if you want to look further back? What if you want to re-read all those cool, witty tweets you were sending out years ago?

3 Ways to Cut Down on the Noise on Twitter

One of the most common reasons people give up on Twitter is because it’s too “noisy”. There are simply too many tweets that they don’t care about, constantly streaming through their timeline. This noise is natural from a network that sees about one billion tweets sent out every week, but it doesn’t mean you have to put up with it! Here are three ways to cut down on the noise on Twitter to have a more harmonious tweeting experience.
