It seems that the folks over at Twitter are prepping up something for its millions of active users. In a tweet today, engineering manager Pankaj Gupta, who currently leads the personalization and recommender systems group over at Twitter, hinted that the “search and discovery on Twitter is set to change forever after tomorrow.” We’re not really sure what he meant but it’s obvious that he was pointing to the search and discovery functionality of the popular microblogging platform.
Meanwhile, Business Insider previously said that Twitter could be pursuing the same direction that the popular aggregation app Flipboard is taking. “When Flipboard CEO Mike McCue resigned from Twitter’s board yesterday, it gave the rest of us a pretty clear idea about where Twitter wants to take its product. McCue stepped down because Flipboard and Twitter are becoming more alike – more competitive,” the publication said. In March this year, Twitter celebrated its 6th-year anniversary and the social networking/ microblogging giant revealed that it now has over 140 million active users, with over 340 million Tweets a day – more than 1 billion every 3 days.RELATED
