Using Twitter to follow topics of interest is a great way to stay on top of trends in your industry, or just to get a feel for what's going on out there. A topic is an event or conversation that's being discussed in real time. Typically, the topics are tagged with hashtags, which allows people who aren't following each other to join in the conversation.
Twitter Topics is a new feature from Twitter. It's designed to help users follow topical conversations and discover brands that often discuss their latest insights. The platform will roll out to all users over the next few months. The feature's most impressive attribute is that it is able to recommend topics based on your likes and dislikes. This isn't a particularly new feature, but Twitter is improving it as the platform evolves.
Twitter Topics is a good way to get a feel for what's being said about topics of interest, and if you're a fan of the platform, you can join in the conversation. To follow a topic of interest, you'll need to set up a public account, or at the very least a semi-public account. If you're using a private account, you'll be limited to following people you already know, and you won't be able to see anything that doesn't make it to your feed.
You can find out more about Topics by using the Twitter app, or the web browser. If you're using the web browser, you can find Topics by clicking on your profile icon and selecting "More" from the menu. If you're using the app, you'll see a Topics section in the navigation menu. You can filter Topics by industry, or you can browse them by topic. You can also follow topics in subcategories.
The Twitter app displays a "More" button at the bottom left corner of your feed. Tap on this button to see the new Topics menu. In this menu, you'll see a list of 100 topics at a time. You can tap on the topics you're most interested in to see their full description. You can also use the menu to unfollow topics. When you do, Twitter will send you a nifty welcome message.
The Twitter app also includes a topic list, which you can view on your profile page. It's also worth noting that some tweets will contain a "follow topic" call to action. You can unfollow topics on Twitter at any time. However, topics can also be muted for a variety of lengths.
In summary, Twitter Topics is a promising new feature, but it's not easy to manage. It's not the only thing to check out when you're on the platform, though, and it's best to use Topics sparingly. You could also just follow regular accounts, which would keep your feed more manageable. It might be a good idea to set up a dedicated Topics tab, though.
The Twitter app also includes a nifty tool called Interests. This helps you build a profile of your interests, and also displays the most noteworthy tweets, or a handful of the best. You can also follow topics of interest, or even tweets from people you follow.
