Twitter implements their 'While You Were Away' feature

As Twitter displays user content as it happens, unlike Facebook, it's often quite easy to miss important Tweets and information unless you manually check each page of interest one by one.




Thanks to this new feature, Twitter are rolling out their 'While You Were Away' feature, which started its implementation as of January the 1st, 2015. It's set to help cover the important Tweets that you may have missed in between login times, giving you a short distinct list for you to mull over.


Twitter already emails their users with some "top" tweets as reminders, this new feature is quite similar but is located within the app itself. If you're like me and only check Twitter on occasion, you'll end up missing most of the action - here's hoping this new feature will help keep the social media platform relevant to the casual user.


You can track various news accounts and user reports on this new feature though Twitter's handy real-time search. Looking into the public response, it's currently a varied mix of positive and negative results.
