Twitter has revealed a new timeline feature that helps you catch up on the best Tweets from people you follow.

The new feature places Tweets you are most likely to care about at the top of your timeline – still recent and in reverse chronological order.

The feature is currently optional, and is available to users through the timeline section of the settings. It can be activated by choosing “Show me the best Tweets first”.

“We’ve already seen that people who use this new feature tend to Retweet and Tweet more, creating more live commentary and conversations, which is great for everyone,” said Twitter.

“We’ll be turning on the feature for you in coming weeks – look out for a notification in your timeline.”
