Twitter’s official blog has announced that it will be introducing a new email service to users with “a weekly email digest delivered to your inbox”, writes Othman Laraki, Director for Growth and International.
The email will include a summary of some of the most relevant Tweets and stories shared by those you are following on Twitter.
The stories will feature a design that is similar to that of the Discover tab, “emphasizing who shared each story beneath summaries to help you decide which ones matter most to you.” You can then click on any of the headlines to finish reading the story, tweeting about it directly from the email and view related tweets from other users.
Laraki also states that “this new email digest also features the most engaging Tweets seen by the people you follow, even if you don’t follow those who wrote them”. You will then be able to see who from your network liked or retweeted the tweet.
The new feature will be rolling out to all users over the coming weeks which you will be informed about in an email from Twitter.
