Twitter to let users follow real time live events
« on: June 22, 2015, 07:04:01 AM »
Twitter will start curating tweets on live events, the micro-blogging service said, as it plans major changes to make its real-time news feed more user friendly.

Dubbed Project Lightning, the changes will let users follow events instead of just people, and instantly upload photos and videos that can be shared across websites, social news and entertainment website Buzzfeed reported on Thursday.

A team of editors will curate the most visually appealing and relevant tweets about say, a red-carpet event or shooting, and present them in one place, so that users need not be flooded with every single tweet as it is posted, Buzzfeed said.

Twitter's mobile app will show both pre-scheduled events and breaking news events, Buzzfeed said.

Twitter spokesperson Rachel Millner confirmed the report but declined to comment further.

Twitter has struggled with user growth. About one billion people have visited the website, but only 302 million are users.
