What Are Twitter Highlights?

Twitter Highlights are available on the iOS and Android mobile apps and include personalized content that has been tailored just for you, which you might have otherwise missed. Twitter explains how it chooses which tweets show up in your Highlights:

To create your Highlights, we look at things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among people you follow, Tweets from people you’re closely tied to, topics and events that are trending in your area or within your network, and people that are popular or trending among people you follow.

How to Get Highlights on Your Phone

To get Highlights on your phone you have to turn on the push notification for the feature.

To do this on your iOS phone or tablet, go to the Me tab in the Twitter app and tap the gear icon. Go to Settings > Notifications > Push Notifications > Highlights and turn the slider on.

Android users can go to Settings > Notifications > Mobile Notifications and check the Highlights box.
