Why would you follow topics on Twitter?

Following Twitter, topics are like subscribing to specific newsletters that send you monthly editions.

Only that Twitter sends you daily, even hourly, updates with tweets from your chosen topics.

For instance, if you follow the “Gaming” topic, you’ll receive gaming tweets, news, and discussions on your feed.

If you follow multiple topics like “Gaming,” “Movies,” and “Rock music,” you’ll receive a mixture of tweets between these topics.

Twitter will refresh your feed whenever something new pops up within those topics, so you’ll always have something interesting to read.

Most people on Twitter use these topics to personalize their feed. Following a topic is much easier than following a certain person.

First of all, you may not know influential people from certain topics. But the “Topics” section is ready to be used!

Can you see the top trending topics on Twitter?

Yes, you can. To see the top trending topics on Twitter, you must go to the “Explore” tab.

Once you get there, you’ll see a list of tweets from the top trending topics on Twitter. They’re at the very top of the page.

Naturally, you can start following these topics right away. This is the best method of coming up to terms with the world’s interests.

Maybe you’ll see past topics resurfacing or new topics catching on. Follow them and be in the center of the social novelties on Twitter!

Many users use the Top Trending Topics section to pick and choose interesting topics to follow.

This can be done in a few minutes of scrolling, and it gets your account up to speed with the most recent news!

Do the same, and you won’t regret it, most likely.
