Twitter app gets new update with News stories and event highlights

Twitter on Wednesday announced their plans to bring more changes to its app and interface. The company was already planning to bring the support for important news stories and a dedicated section for big events. Twitter has failed to provide all the major updates about the last big events like Royal wedding, earthquakes etc. However, they are now determined to provide instant access to the highlighted event updates including the World cup.

However, Twitter is still on top of other competitors in terms of news updates and other important updates. Because their major competitors like Facebook are now running after the contents of family and friends instead of news updates. So Twitter is getting more business with this move. Therefore, within few months, Twitter will become the best source for live updates about big events and other news updates.

The prompts will appear at the top of Twitter’s timeline, the heart of the service and the first thing that users generally see when they open Twitter on a smartphone, said Keith Coleman, Twitter vice president of product. “We want Twitter to be the little bird on your shoulder that tells you what you need to know when you need to know it,” Coleman said in a briefing with reporters. According to him, Twitter is redesigning their recently (2015) introduced Moments tab with more news updates and more event highlights.

Twitter shares hit a three-year high of $44.33 (roughly Rs. 3,000) during intraday trade on Tuesday after JP Morgan raised its price target on the stock, citing revenue growth estimates and Twitter’s ability to show “what’s happening now” during events like the 2018 FIFA World Cup. That’s a really huge achievement and the company is now moving forward with the new plans. The new update for the mobile apps will roll out soon and you will receive the new features soon.
