Now Twitter Lets You Make Multiple Timelines

 In Product Releases/ Updates

Twitter unveiled the ability to make custom timelines Tuesday —users can create their own timelines around particular events, filled with tweets from particular users and topics.

“Whether you want to collect the best Tweets about a TV show or help people find the latest information about fast-moving real-time situations, custom timelines let you give everyone a place to follow along,” wrote Brian Ellin, product manager for the Twitter platform.

You’ll need Tweetdeck, the Twitter client that the company bought two years ago, in order to make the custom timelines. Developers can also make one by hand using the Twitter API.

Tweetdeck users will be familiar with the concept, since the service has long allowed its users to create custom columns of content. What has changed is that those columns are now, in effect, portable and the custom timelines will be fully embeddable.

Not all Tweetdeck users can make the custom timelines yet, but Twitter says it will be rolling the option out to everyone over the next few days. Original article from
