Twitter isn't relenting in its eagerness to test new features. The social site has begun testing an option to follow topics in addition to people. You'll have to pick from a list of topics curated by Twitter, starting with sports, but it should expand to include celebrities, TV shows and other common discussions. When you do follow a topic, you'll see a handful of tweets in addition to those from people you follow.

You'll also have the option to mute topics, so you won't have to risk spoiling a show or enduring a done-to-death conversation.

The test is currently limited to Android users and includes a companion test that lets you create separate lists to follow individual interests, including keywords and individual users. If you know someone always has a good hot take on politics, you can keep tabs on them in addition to mentions of the relevant issue.

Twitter will let you pin your favorite lists in its app

Twitter will let you pin your favorite lists in its app The lists feature hasn't received a ton of love from Twitter over the years outside of Tweetdeck, but lists can be extremely useful for organizing accounts by interest or to quickly see the latest tweets from your closest friends. Last month, though, Twitter gave lists a bit more prominence by testing them on the Home tab of its app, and now it's offering more options to quickly switch between tweets about your favorite show or some travel inspiration accounts. Ready for more customization? Now you can pick which lists will appear and pin them. Just don't let your lists know you're playing favorites. ???? pic.twitter.

And yes, there's still another test after that. True to rumors, Twitter is testing an option in Android to snooze notifications (see below). You're limited to one-, three- and 12-hour increments, but those could do the job if you're popular enough that your phone tends to blow up with mentions and DMs while you're out on the town.

None of these are guaranteed to see a widespread release, but topic following stands a better chance than most. Twitter's perpetual challenge has been to help newcomers decide who and what to follow. This would get the ball rolling even if you have no idea who's worth watching. It could also be considerably more convenient than diving into Moments, which exist as separate entities disconnected from your own feed.

Twitter tests ways for users to follow and snooze specific topics.
You may soon be able to organize Twitter's web of hashtags and handles in a smarter way, that is if the company can pull off its ambitious new rethinking of the app's timelines. The company isn't getting rid of the process of a following users but at a press event in SF, company execs announced that they are planning to push users to start following "topics" that bring in well-engaged tweets from a variety of accounts that the user might not necessarily follow. Twitter is currently testing the feature on Android with topics focused around sports "from MMA to Formula 1" to specific professional franchises.
