Twitter for Android Tests Out New Topics Page

Twitter has been modifying its approach in recent times. While the social media platform has had a tendency to set itself apart from the likes of Facebook, the fact of the matter is that it has recently been trying to make itself more content oriented by connecting users with topics that might interest them and accounts that would facilitate their interest in these topics, and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that a lot of users utilize Twitter in an attempt to become more knowledgeable about a variety of topics and leaning into this with new features could be the very thing that Twitter needs in order to gain an edge over its mounting competition.

One way in which Twitter was trying to tackle this issue is by looking into creating separate topics pages that people could follow. For example, if you were a fan of history you could follow that topic on Twitter and see accounts and tweets related to it. This is being changed up now, with Twitter potentially moving towards a singular topics page that you wouldn’t have to follow but can instead peruse at your own leisure which is the sort of thing that can end up benefiting you in a wide variety of ways.

This indicates that Twitter might be shifting its tactics. By consolidating topics and making it more of a reference page rather than something you can follow for content, it is creating a different outlet that users might end up being interested in. You would still be able to follow topics of course, but a consolidated topics page might mean that you would end up seeing all of your topics on that page alone instead of on your feed which could go a long way towards cleaning a messy twitter feed up.
