Topics will be curated by Twitter, with individual tweets being identified through machine learning, and for now, only sports-related interests can be followed, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

For example, if you are following a TV show but have not seen the most recent episode, you can temporarily hide tweets about it. The micro-blogging platform aims to roll out the feature by the end of the year.

"The company is also exploring other features such as a search tool for your direct messages and the ability to reorder photos after you attached them to a tweet," reports CNET.

The edit button, however, is not expected anytime soon. Twitter revenue grew 18 per cent year-over-year to reach $841 million in the second quarter of 2019, while its average monetisable daily active users (mDAU) hit 139 million.
