    Twitter this afternoon unveiled several new features that are in the works for the social network, sharing the news at an event for press that was attended by The Verge.

    Twitter will soon allow users to follow interests in addition to people, which will let users see tweets about topics of their choosing such as sports teams, celebrities, TV shows, and more.

    The feature, in testing on Android devices, will feature topics curated with Twitter. Individual tweets surfaced for people will be surfaced through machine learning.

    Twitter is also exploring a option that would let users set up separate lists in the Twitter app to follow individual interests, which Twitter hopes will make the social network a "more powerful interest platform."

    Other features are in the works too, including searchable direct messages, an option to re-order photos that are included with a tweet, and support for Live Photos. There's no specific word yet on when we can expect to see these features introduced on iOS devices.

    I will be happy with live photos. But yeesh....Twitter in general is painful enough.

    Twitter already has (had?) lists. What would be different about the new version?

    How about: only show tweets from people I follow, in chronological order?
    Please?

    Far more important to EVERYONE is the ability to edit tweets. Also, the ability to only show tweets in your tl from accounts that you follow would be nice too.

    You get tweets from people you don't follow? That's messed up
