Twitter's New Timeline
By Ashley Harding on
The Twitter community is buzzing this morning with ground-breaking news - a new set-up for the timeline has rolled out to a limited audience.
This change is to a relevancy-based feed, as opposed to the time-based feed that we’re used to. An algorithm determines this on the back end of the platform. The “instant” feed made Twitter unique, gave voices equal weight (visibility) and helped establish the platform as a premier news source.
An algorithm feed will prioritise tweets with higher reactions and “better” content, similar to Facebook. This is good news for advertisers, allowing brands to compete for relevancy and followers. It may be a problem for small businesses to have a voice however, in an increasingly noisy space, when timely posts may no longer be visible to the entire Twitter community.
We think this will affect your tourism business – do you?
