Twitter lets you follow users where you can get updates based on their tweets. However, not everyone posts things that you might be interested in, in which it would then be easier to try and sort news and topics through hashtags. However, the good news is that Twitter will be making some changes on that front.
According to a report from The Verge, it has been revealed that Twitter will soon be letting users follow topics instead of users. Through this feature, you’ll be able to follow topics of your choosing and interest, meaning that if you’d rather not follow a particular individual, you can instead choose to follow topics that might be able to deliver more targeted topics.
There will be about 300 or so topics to choose from, where it will range from sports, entertainment, gaming, and so on. Also, similar to how the follow system works on Twitter, you’ll be able to find tweets from accounts that also tweet about those topics and who might have more credibility on those topics.
That being said, this isn’t a brand new concept. Instagram also has a similar feature where users can follow hashtags in order to get content that is close or similar to what they are interested in.
