Micro-Blogging Site Twitter is testing a feature on Twitter. Which will keep the news stories in the top of the timeline so that the users keep up with events happening around the world?

With this update, we want people to easily see the news and stories being discussed by their followers. Wally Gurzynski (Twitter's product manager)

With this feature, a message will prompt (catch up on what’s happened while you are away). Earlier in 2015 and 2016, Twitter had introduced features such as ‘When you are away‘ and ‘Never miss an important tweet‘. However, these news stories were not specifically highlighted.

What kind of news will be shown on “Twitter Stories Timeline”

These features will focus on news stories of News Agencies and Institutions more than interesting and popular. It has been reported that “Catching up with the news” test feature is in line with the other features being tested on Twitter. The main objective of these features is to make special conversation and news-based events easier.
