No more Twitter FOMO: The “while you were away” feature is live

Twitter’s missed tweets product is now live on its iOS app. The feature will expand to Android and web browsers soon. When you’ve been gone from the service for awhile, you’ll be shown the top tweets that appeared during that time. From the most retweeted or most favorited, you’ll get a quick recap on the most important stuff. In the blog post announcing the news, Twitter was careful to say this isn’t the first step to algorithmic curation, “With a few improvements to the home timeline we think we can do a better job of delivering on that promise without compromising the real time nature of Twitter.”
