As Twitter continues to work on its proposed topic streams option, which would potentially enable people to swipe across to view curated tweet timelines around specific subjects, it's also looking at new ways to help connect users to more content-specific listings, with a view to increasing engagement through discovery.
This week, social media expert Matt Navarra (who, incidentally, spoke to Twitter's Sara Haider in the first episode of his new podcast) spotted two new Twitter tabs in testing - one which links straight through to your tweet bookmarks, and another to make it easier to view your lists.
As you can see here, there are two new tabs added onto the end of the display, which, if rolled out, would be a major update, given that Twitter has maintained its simple, four tab display since basically its inception.
Twitter did, at one stage, add a tab for Moments right in the middle of the function bar, but converted back to its four tabs again in a subsequent revamp, and the expansion of that bottom function bar has always remained contentious.
The fact that Twitter's testing a 50% increase in those tabs underlines just how much it's looking to improve tweet discovery, and raise awareness of the real-time discussions flowing through its app.
In addition to this, Navarra has also noted that Twitter's testing out a quicklink to list creation within the Lists tab, and a new 'Topics' sidebar, another way to connect you through to more tweet content.
Twitter is clearly very serious about boosting connection to more content within the app. A key challenge for Twitter has always been in helping new users, in particular, find more relevant tweet content. It's tried out various options on this front - will this new discovery push help to maximize its opportunities?
