|Fave People Feature is Testing on Twitter
By: Jessica Cherok
Don’t you hate it when your favorite tweeps get lost in the enormity of your Twitter feed? Now, Twitter is testing out a new feature that will keep us from missing out on tweets.
The new feature, Fave People, is a timeline that will group up tweets made by your preferred Twitter users. According to TechCrunch, screenshots of the feature state, “Keep track of your favorites. Tap the star icon on the profiles of your favorite people to see their Tweets in this timeline. You can also choose to receive notifications when they tweet from Settings.”
Fave People is really a simplified version of Twitter’s ability to make lists. Instead of users having to go through and compile lists by hand, this new Fave People feature allows for a one-click compilation of people to follow, though Twitter will still likely keep the list feature as well.
Other rumored newness — the testing of a new profile redesign that looks a lot more like Facebook’s. The new design is said to be a big departure from Twitter’s current look, and focuses content more on media and images.
While Twitter has not come out with any official statement regarding the Fave People feature, it’s not uncommon for the social media company to test new features before crafting a statement.
