Twitter Testing Module Highlighting Tweets From One Specific Account

Twitter is testing a new feature that highlights tweets from one specific account in users’ timelines.

The social network confirmed to Sarah Perez of TechCrunch that select iOS, Android and web users are part of the test, adding that users who do not desire to use this feature can dismiss it.

Twitter told Perez it chooses which account to highlight based on signals including frequency of engagement, adding that engagement will also determine whether or not it keeps showing the module to users.

Readers: Would this be a useful addition to Twitter?
