Twitter Might Come Out With New Tabs of Lists & Bookmarks, Along With New 'Topics' Shortcut

Have you ever felt the urge to explore more and more on Twitter, especially related to topics that interest you? Well just like you, Twitter itself has always been pretty active in modifying the app for a more better experience. Therefore, the latest addition in the list actually revolves around what you or I might have been wishing for ever since they first proposed it - “Topic Stream” shortcut.

For those of you who have little idea about this new option, it would let you “swipe across to view curated tweets (based on topics of your choice) in the Topics section”. And wait, this is not all, there is also a buzz surrounding the new ways that Twitter might adopt to make users connect to more content-specific listings. The precise plan is to maximize engagement through discovery.

The news regarding the reported changes first broke out on the first episode of social media expert Matt Navarra’s podcast who invited Twitter’s Sara Haider for a detailed discussion. According to her, the two new Twitter tabs under consideration are; one that would link you straight through to your tweet bookmarks, and the other would make you view your lists in a much easier way. The screenshot of the proposal shows that both of the two tabs would be included at the end of the display, which also makes the possibility of major Twitter update to incorporate them in the current four tab display of Twitter’s mobile app.

Navarra also shared a screenshot of a quick link to list creation within the Lists tab.



As you might remember, prior to this Twitter also tried adding a tab for Moments in the middle of function bar but shifted back to the traditional four because it failed to make any impact on users.

As Twitter is planning for a 50 percent increase in the tabs, it is pretty much clear that the company’s new aim is to help users find more relevant content while boosting connection to more content. Will the change actually go in favor of better Twitter experience? We will have to wait for the proposed changes to be released first.
