In a bold move of improvisation, Twitter has withdrawn the ‘Discover’ and ‘Activity’ tabs on Android and iOS platforms. Instead, users will now be able to access Trends on the search page tailored by Twitter. There will be a short description about each trend to understand the topics and hashtags better. “We know that trends aren’t always self-explanatory, so now you’ll see a description below each trend. Since trends tend to be abbreviations without context, like #NYFW, a description will make it clear that this trend is about New York Fashion Week. The new trends experience may also include how many Tweets have been sent and whether a topic is trending up or down,” wrote Gabor Cselle on the company’s official blog. You can access the new feature by adding updating your Twitter app. Currently, it is rolled out in the U.S and will expand to other countries in the upcoming days. Twitter is also mulling over plans to make content reading easier by implementing similar features for web. On the downside, users will not be able to see the tweets their friends favourite and the new users their friends follow.
