Twitter rolled out Highlights, a feature that presents Android users with a twice-daily summary of the most important things happening on the network.
Twitter creates the custom Highlights by analysing “things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among people you follow, Tweets from people you’re closely tied to, topics and events that are trending in your area or within your network, and people that are popular or trending among people you follow.”
Highlights arrive via a push notification that takes users directly into the Twitter app. The Highlight was introduced to allow for more engagement and more views (and ultimately to serve more ads), while keeping you up-to-date.
It is hoped that this feature would at least reduce people's addiction to twitter.
