Twitter launches hot searches
The hot search was bought?
Twitter announced today that it will add tweets (Twitter messages) and short descriptions to some popular topics to help people understand why these topics become popular and become trends.
Twitter’s move is to make popular topics easier to understand. Twitter stated in a blog post that it will immediately start adding tweets on some topics in iOS and Android apps. At the same time, these tweets will soon appear on the Web version of the website. In contrast, related short descriptions will be released in the next few weeks.
Twitter stated that this move aims to give users a deeper understanding of current trends and why people are particularly interested in a particular topic. Of course, Twitter will not add extra content to every popular topic, because many topics speak for themselves.
Twitter also revealed that more than 500,000 users posted tweets last year, asking “why is this a trend”. Obviously, this new Twitter initiative helps these confused users.
Twitter said that the addition of these tweets will be determined by algorithms and employees, and the trend description will be entirely determined by employees.
Prior to this, Twitter and Facebok’s “trend services” (current hot spots) have been criticized for helping spread misinformation. In 2018, Facebook also deleted hot topics, and subsequently launched a special news tag service to edit content with employees.
Twitter finally stated that this new feature will be launched in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Egypt, France, India, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Spain, the United Kingdom, the UAE and the United States.
