How to Get Twitter “Highlights” Directly on Your Phone

Oyetoke Tobi - Thursday, November 10, 2016

There are lots of noises in the social network everyday with a total 313+ million active monthly users sharing an average of 500 million tweets per day. And this serves as a distraction for others because they might be busy that moment. Twitter has tried lots of different methods to reduce the noise produced such as muting Twitter users or turning off retweets. Another way to reduce the Twitter noise is using the Highlights feature.

What is the Twitter Highlights?

Twitter Highlights is available on both iOS and Android devices apps and consist of modified or customized content that has been customized for you, which you might have missed. 

Twitter explains how they choose which tweets are to show up in your Highlights. Twitter said:

“To create your personalized Highlights, we look at things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among the people you follow on Twitter, Tweets from people you’re close to, topics and events which are trending in your area or within your network, and the people that are popular or trending among the people you followed.”



How to Get Highlights on Your Phone

So to get Highlights on your phone, you have to make sure the push notification for the feature is turned ON.

So to do this on your iOS phone or tablet device, head to the Me tab in the Twitter app and tap on the gear icon to go to settings. You have to navigate to Settings > Notifications > Push Notifications > Highlights and then turn the slider on.

Android users should head to Settings > Notifications > Mobile Notifications and click on the Highlights box to check it.

After this, you should start receiving Highlight push notifications twice a day at most, which you can easily swipe through to view the tweets you have missed.
