Twitter has come up with a new feature ‘Highlights’ to attract the Android users. This new feature is to ensure that the users do not miss significant tweets by proving them with the most interesting tweets.
Twitter has provided an easy way to the users, by informing the things that are important to them by giving them a summary.

"While your home timeline is a great place to browse through and engage with Tweets, we know it can be challenging to find the time to get through everything,” Twitter stated.

The feature is an opt-in service, in which it is not necessary to select the option if you are perfectly comfortable with checking Twitter once in a while to see what's new.

But if you need it, the procedure which is given below is followed:

-Go to Settings

-Click on your Twitter handle

-Then in the Mobile Notifications section select Highlights.

After this procedure is completed, you will receive two push notifications every day, inform you about some of the most relevant tweets.

"To create your Highlights, we look at things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among people you follow, Tweets from people you’re closely tied to, topics and events that are trending in your area or within your network, and people that are popular or trending among people you follow,” the post said of the opt-in feature.

The ‘Highlights’ feature is only accessible for devices running Google's Android mobile operating system. Twitter mentioned that soon it will be available in other platforms.
