Social networking website, Twitter has rolled out a new feature which will highlight the links shared by your network into your Home timeline. The new feature also shows tweets mentioning the link underneath it.
As per reports, this feature has now been rolled out for Android and iOS apps as well as for the web version of the app.
This is an attempt by the social network to change its image from a social networking app to a news app.
While it is highlighting news and tweets from journalists in its “explore” tab, Twitter is also experimenting with curated timelines around breaking news events, a report of Buzzfeed said.
“…Our goal is to provide support to people in times of crisis, and show people what matters most,” Del Harvey, Twitter Vice President for Trust and Safety, recently said.
“Over the past few months, we’ve refined our tools, improved the speed of our response, and identified areas where we can improve,” Harvey added.
Twitter recently reported a profit of $61 million for the first three months of 2018. It has now 336 million monthly active users globally. The social network has been rolling out new features while expanding character limits to engage its users.
