One of the largest Social Media platform Twitter is now rolling out an update for the iOS users in the America where they can now see the tweets which they mostly care about the most in new search tab that is going to be of “sections.”
As of now, the Twitter search tab in the Apple iOS app which also offers a vertically scrolling list of all the trending topics. The user can now simply move to horizontally to view the top tweets and news.
“We added sections so it's easier for you to see the Tweets you care about the most, starting today in the US,” the company tweeted late on Wednesday.
The social media network has also considering an edit function as a new release. Its CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey, who is in India this week, said on November 12 that the micro-blogging platform has been considering edit button for quite some time but did not reveal any specific timeline.
“A lot of people want the edit button because they want to quickly fix a mistake they made. Like a misspelling or tweeting the wrong URL. That's a lot more achievable than allowing people to edit any tweet all the way back in time,” Dorsey told the gathering at IIT-Delhi.
Dorsey also revealed that Twitter is taking the several “multi-variable” steps which includes the use of the Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence tools to curb the spread of all the misleading and fake information on its platform ahead of the 2019 General elections in the countries.
Addressing a Town Hall-style meeting at the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi (IIT-D), Dorsey said the fake news is a way too big category.
“The real problem is not misinformation per se as jokes can also be categorised as misinformation. But misinformation that is spread with the intent to mislead people is a real problem,” stressed the Twitter CEO. The announcement comes amidst Twitter’s effort to revamp its experience on the social platform and curb spread of misinformation on the platform.
