- A new feature has been spotted on Twitter for its desktop trend box — a section of the homepage that delivers 10 of the most popular topics on the platform.
- Previously, the trend box would just display a keyword, but the social platform seems to be testing out explanations for each of the top 10.
- The definitions aren't clickable, but rather appear to be texted pulled from headlines with tweets on the topic.
Twitter seems to be taking more responsibility as the leader in real time news. The testing of this feature follows another feature spotted last month -- the hashtag definition. The move will help marketers who depend on knowing the trending topics on Twitter, and not to mention, knowing what a trending topic or hashtag means can prevent some embarrassing mistakes by marketers who accidently jump in on the wrong topic.
