If you’re too busy to keep checking Twitter for all the latest updates that you care about, Twitter has a new tool to help you out. The social network has just announced Highlights for Android, a simple summary version of Twitter that sends relevant Tweets to users via push notification.
Highlights works by looking at your account. It will look through the conversations that are popular among the people you follow, and then highlight Tweets from people you’re closely tied to, topics and events that are trending in your area.
It’s an opt in feature so don’t worry about Twitter spamming you with updates. Once you sign up for Highlights, you will get notifications on your phone up to two times a day just to let you know your Highlights are ready. Opening the notifications will load the Twitter app directly whereby the Highlights will be displayed in a new interface.
If you wish to try out Highlights, you can turn it on at the Settings menu. Select your account handle and check the Highlights box at the mobile notifications menu. The feature is only available on Android for the moment, and might be making its way to other platforms in the future.
