Highlights will change the way users use Twitter. Currently, the home timeline is the place where users browse and engage with Tweets. For old time users like me, we are used to this method of using Twitter. But some newer users and those who don’t use Twitter as often might find it intimidating or challenging. That’s why Twitter introduced Highlights to let users get the most out of it no matter how much time they spend on the social media platform.

Highlights provides a fast and simple Twitter summary to let users catch up on interesting thing quickly. To create Highlights, Twitter looks at things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among people that the user follow, Tweets from people they are closely tied to, topics and events that are trending in the area or within their network, and people that are popular or trending among people they follow.

Highlight in English is now available to all Android users. Twitter will extend this experience globally in all 35+ languages that Twitter supports. Twitter will consider bringing Highlights to other platforms in the future.

Spotify playlist for #SGHaze

The haze is getting worse lately. Since most people will be staying indoors during this period, the good folks at Spotify created a playlist to beat the hazy blues.

Brilliant idea. Didn’t know that there are so many songs related to haze.
