Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) continuously taking steps to make Twitter accessible to everyone. The trend section on Twitter showed what is happening in the world and what people are talking about right now. But the trend section was a bit confusing as too often we saw a word or phrase trending on Twitter and many people starting question why this is trending? That question was tweeted many times on Twitter.
So, Twitter is striving to make the trending section less confusing. Twitter has disclosed last week that it has planned to add more data to the trends section. Twitter has decided to add pinned tweets & explanations on trends to explain why something is trending. This step makes it easier for the user to know what is happening in the world and why the word or a phrase is trending.
Today, Twitter has disclosed that it has decided to add improved headlines and a short explanation to some Trends, so the users will be able to know why something’s trending when the user is in the Explore tab. If we look at the example of this new update, sometimes we saw the name of a singer is trending on Twitter but we don’t know what happened. To know about the news users scrolled down the tweets and got a vague idea of what is actually happening.
But after this update, if we look at today’s trends ‘Nobel Peace Prize’ is trending no.1 right now. TWTR now describes by the way of headline and short summary that the ‘Nobel Peace Prize’ is trending because Norwegian parliamentarian has nominated Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. That’s helpful and prevents users from scrolling down the tweets to now the information about the word which is trending.

But unfortunately, after releasing the update for the Trends section Twitter is still lacking in its ability to fully explain all of its trends. There are various trends that are still without any explanation. If we look at the trending section there are many trends such as ‘Kuzma’ Clackamas’ and ‘Rey Nobody’ are trending without any description. Similarly, the trends which are led with a hashtag are also without description.
But Twitter has earlier disclosed that its curation team is working on the new update. It has also stated that the company knows there is more work to do to enhance trends and the context updates they announced. This new update is just a small step in the right direction.
