Twitter says it’s testing two ways its users can engage with a community by switching between “For You” and “Most Recent” timelines within each group they’re a part of. This little test is rolling out for select iPhone, Android, and web users.
According to Twitter, its community feature is designed to help people find others with similar interests and provide a “comfortable space to engage in the conversations most relevant to them.”
So let someone be a Harry Styles Fan, food lover or one Xbox enthusiast, we know it can be difficult to follow conversations in a community, especially ones that are very active. With this new test, we’re making it easier for users to personalize their community feeds and follow the conversations that matter most to them.
From now on, the setting chosen by each person will become the new default each time they visit this Twitter community. The configuration is unique, which means that it can be modified at any time and that each Community has its own.
Twitter already offers the same experience on its main feed. With this change to the community, the company wants to give people the ability to stay up to date with the latest happenings and see the most relevant and engaging conversations within their groups.
For those who are part of this test, they will see that these timelines can be edited in the upper right corner of each community, just like on the Twitter home timeline.
Since the company introduced the Twitter community, it has already brought several new features to it, such as the ability for admins to pin their community tweets, search within a community, remove mod/admin members, and looking for members.
