Twitter Adds Algorithmically Curated Tweets By Topic To Its Explore Tab

Now you can view tweets sorted by topic, without having to follow anyone, right in Twitter's Explore tab.

The social platform released the new feature globally on iOS and Android Tuesday, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed to BuzzFeed News.

Twitter's algorithms will show you these topics based on what they know about your interests. Eventually, the platform will give users more control over what they see, the spokesperson said.

The feature is one Twitter users have long requested. Importantly, it will give new and casual users a way to gain value from the platform without having to build a list of people to follow, a task that can be burdensome to those trying the platform out.

Here's what the new tweets sorted by category look like:
