The truth is that the microblogging platform does not stop making changes to its services, and now we have received the news that Twitter begins to show tweets that are trending on accounts we don't follow, directly on our timeline. It does not seem to be advertising, but rather a suggestion of content that your system thinks we may be interested in.
The truth is that Twitter has even thought about organizing our timeline in a non-chronological way. so that when we entered the main page we would find the tweets that the company considers most relevant, instead of the most recent. Twitter is not doing well financially, so it keeps experimenting to attract new members.
In this case, some users have checked how trending tweet suggestions appear. They do not seem to be global trends, rather it seems that Twitter adapts them according to the geographical area of each account and their personal tastes And they are from accounts that the user does not follow, something quite controversial.
Here's an example of how Twitter shows tweets that are trending from accounts we don't follow. Check out take a look at the screenshot:
A Twitter Experiment
Twitter has confirmed that it is indeed showing these trending tweets to a few usersHowever, it is an experiment, so we do not know if or when they will really reach the whole world. Some time ago he tried to change the Favorites for Likes, and in the end they were released for the general public.
In the case of tweets that Twitter shows and are trending, a cross appears to close them, and we are asked if the topic we are not interested. This is an important option, because it seems that there are quite a few tweets of this type being displayed in a row.
Of course, the idea is interesting, but Twitter should not only show us trending tweets, it has to develop a system capable of discovering our interestsand give us content that is really relevant to us, or else your initiative will fail. What do you think about Twitter showing trending tweets from accounts we don't follow? Is this a good idea, or do you find it annoying?
