Twitter adds a new feature for sports lovers
Twitter is adding more features at a fairly fast pace to keep its users engaging and active. In the latest attempt, Twitter added a new feature which will let you see tweets related popular sports matches. The new feature is named as “Happening Now”.
Now when you scroll through the Twitter news feed (home tab) on your mobile, you’ll see a carousel at the top of the screen with current games. You can tap on any of the games that are shown there and you’ll see a list of the tweets, related to that match, organized algorithmically. The feature is available for Android and iOS users today.
Feel the roar of the crowd, no matter where you are.

Previously, Twitter also introduced Highlights, Moments, and ICYMI (In Case You Missed It). All of them perform in the same fashion and is causing confusion for a lot of people.
Still: Twitter now has Highlights, Moments, ICYMI, and Happening Now. All halfhearted versions of the same thing. It’s a mess

Recently, Twitter also introduced a feature which lets you privately save tweets by bookmarking them. Which means you will not have to like a Tweet to save it. And it also increased the character limit for the first time in 11 years. It also tested a Lite app for Android devices. The Lite app will work efficiently even on slow networks.
