Twitter, an online social media platform that has brought together the world from a common man to the presidents of the countries, is testing a new feature that will bring a timeline on the top of the users feed to highlight the breaking news events.

 This new feature is tested with Android and iOS users in the US and it bundles tweets that are curated by humans.  But the feature under testing process, is expected to be ‘strictly’ curated algorithmically in the future.

According to a recent report published BuzzFeed News, the social media platform ‘Twitter’ test did highlight its curated timeline on 14th March the current year and this timeline displayed events such as the congressional special election in Pennsylvania, the demise of Stephen Hawking, and a lawsuit that got filed by the family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich against Fox News.
