For viewing more related tweets, all a user needs to do is click on the “View more” button below the original five tweets at the bottom of the column. This leads to the opening up of 10 additional tweets. The user will then need to scroll down to view all the tweets. Viewing all of them in one go is possible if the user makes the column wider, but then this would deprive the user of comfortably viewing the main tweet, hence defeating the real purpose of the social networking site, says the report. Also the feature will help new and inexperienced users find their way to the site by going through different tweets.

Proper web implementation

When the feature will be made to everyone has yet to be seen. If the company chooses to make it a universal feature, it should focus first on factors like implementing it in a better manner on the web. The feature works better on mobile as the user simply needs to swipe left to view suggested tweets, says the report.

Separately, for users who visit the platform but are not registered, the company plans to woo them with a new home page, which is a change from the earlier simple log-in page with a background photo. Twitter, which has 288 million active users, believes 500 million people visit the site each month without being logged in.
