Twitter tests out "Unfollow" suggestionsFrom The 3:59 show: In case you're having a hard time figuring out who to ignore.
[MUSIC] Twitter was offering an interesting test. It was a recommendation list for who to unfollow on your Twitter list. So it was like an automated set of accounts that they would pop up that you don't really engage with that much. The idea is, hey, if you're not really talking to this person maybe unfollow them. Maybe have a better experience on Twitter that way. Right. So this is like a very limited test. Twitter said they only showed it to a small amount of people, and the idea was that if you follow people that you interact with a lot, maybe you'll have a better time on social media. Right. Though this is very counterintuitive to how a social network usually works Yes.
