Last November, Twitter announced the launch of a feature called "Instant Timeline", when new users first came to the Twitter homepage and could see Twitter's recommended instant information flow without registering. Now it is news that Twitter has started testing this feature in a small number of Android users.

Instant Timeline's operating mechanism is that the user authorizes Twitter to pull the phone address book, and Twitter can see which contacts the user has registered for Twitter, and find out which accounts the friends are interested in, And then analyze and speculate on tweets or Twitter accounts that users may be interested in. In this way, when new users turn on Twitter, their instant timeline will automatically populate the content from the associated account. However, with the increasing number of users who are focused on their own, Twitter's recommended content will gradually exit the user's instant Timeline.

If Twitter's test on the Android platform succeeds, Instant timeline will eventually be available to all new users. Indeed, the Twitter move comes at a time when companies are pushing for new user growth, and last year analysts and investors criticised the company for slow user growth, and Twitter's share price half when Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, who was rumoured to be responsible, left the job late this year.

At the end of January this year, Twitter launched a group chat and video feature for users, along with audio and video editing services. The advent of instant timelines will also be another attempt by Twitter to retain users.
