- At its first-ever Analyst Day, Twitter revealed plans for the coming year to help new users feel more welcome and stick around.
- A big change will be the "Instant Timeline" feature that will automatically populate new users feeds so that interesting content will appear.
- To avoid users missing out on major happening, a feature called "Timeline Highlights" that will show users the most popular tweets while they were logged out.
For even the most loyal user, much of Twitter can often feel like white noise. The social site hasn't changed a ton since its inception, especially when compared to Facebook, so answering criticism and adapting was a long time coming. The higher quality the users, the more advertisers will want to invest in the platform. The news seemed to work—the company's stock rose 7% Wednesday.
