Twitter for Android’s new Highlight feature will push notify you the day’s top tweets

Twitter on Thursday launched a new feature on its Android app that will highlight the day’s top tweets, sending users push notifications twice a day on the best tweets they may have missed.

So if you’re unlike the rest of us social media addicts who refresh Twitter a handful of times a day, the Highlight feature can help you check the app even less often. Efficient!

Twitter said in its blog that it will analyze popular tweets based on conversations among accounts you follow and trending topics in your local area. From the push notification, you can click to go to the interface displaying each highlighted tweet, allowing you to swipe through them until arriving back to your regular real-time feed.

The Highlight feature is opt-in only, so if you are open to receiving push notifications from Twitter, you can go to Settings > your Twitter handle > Mobile notifications and check Highlights. The company says it will consider bringing the feature to other platforms in the future.
