Twitter has partially launched the cool ‘while you were away’ feature on its mobile apps, giving users a quick glance of tweets from when they were away from the app. Twitter will essentially handpick the best tweets that were posted during your absence and present them on top the next time you open the application.
It’s not clear if Twitter will randomly assign the tweets on top or judge the best tweets based on the number of retweets, favorites or replies. The feature was originally teased back in November, but seems to be coming to fruition finally.
Before you get excited, we must clarify that this is only seeing a limited release as of now. Twitter appears to be rolling this feature out to a handful of users at the moment, so there’s still some waiting to do for a widespread rollout of this new feature. But it’s good to know that Twitter has finally introduced this feature on its mobile apps which will save users the trouble of painfully scrolling through tweets.
