Twitter is now introducing its new Topics feature, letting users follow along with their interests, instead of just people…
Last week, signs of the new Twitter Topics option were again spotted. The feature has already gone through months of testing. Now, it’s beginning to launch.
New Twitter Topics Section Starts Rolling Out
The new option to follow Topics on Twitter boasts 300 areas of interest, including sports, gaming, entertainment, and many more). When users follow topics on Twitter, they’ll see tweets from authoritative accounts they don’t otherwise follow.
The feature will be of great help to people who don’t know who to follow specifically about particular subjects. Or, people who simply do not want to commit to following a number of accounts in that area.
It’s also a welcome option for not only new but experienced users who want to find content on certain subjects without having to search extensively.
It’s similar to the Google Discover feed, which allows users to follow specific topics. That interface not only lets people select topics, it also offers some granular controls. For instance, it lets users choose between seeing more or less of subjects, while likewise offering a number of feed content options.
Twitter Topics are just now showing up as an option for users. Look for it in the profile side menu over the next several days.
