Create Multiple Timelines on the Twitter Home Screen

This is one of the best features of Twitter, other than the “Lights Out” black theme and Bookmark is Lists. Using Twitter Lists, you can create custom timelines for your topics of interest. For example, you can create separate Lists for Technology, Politics, and Android where you can add tweeple based on their domain expertise. The best part about Twitter Lists feature is that they work exactly the same way as your default home screen timeline does.

With the latest Twitter update on Android, you can now pin those lists directly on your Twitter home screen along with the main Timeline. This small design change in the update has made Twitter Lists more accessible, easy to use, and improved the user experience significantly. Since the main twitter timeline is filled with all kinds of news and information, you can simply use alternate timeline for accessing different topics. For example, if you want to read about Technology at a particular time, you can just swipe left and move to the Tech timeline. Basically, multiple timelines on Twitter is a boon for users who follow a range of topics and people. Enough talks, let’s check this new feature and see how to create multiple timelines on the Twitter home screen.

This tutorial was about how you can create Lists and set up multiple Timelines on your Twitter home screen. We have not used this feature extensively so far, but it has worked really well and we did not see any kind of delay in updating the feed with the latest tweets. However, we don’t have one feature that the main timeline has and that is the option to choose between Top Tweets and Tweets in chronological order. We hope Twitter slowly rolls out those features as well to the List section. Hope you liked this new feature of Twitter. Do let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
