Let's discuss the latest development of Twitter's facilities.

In a departure from its previous style, Twitter have provided a facility which chooses which messages are shown. Their announcement of it is here, with the title "Never miss important Tweets from people you follow".

Our friends at the Twitter chat #smchat have already discussed this topic (yesterday) and you can read their framing post on "Fixing Twitter: What does the new Algorithm Mean for Twitter Chats?" and transcript of their conversation.

This development is, of course, relevant to #innochat because we use Twitter.

More importantly, this is an example of a development in digital social communication, so let's have a free-wheeling discussion of its innovative aspects and their relevance to many spheres of activity.
