A twitter designer David Bellona reported on twitter’s blog, the lets user can choose which timeline to view when checking out other profiles.Due to filtered tweets design its easier to followers to view specific content such as photos,videos,tweets or replies which are related to your account.In new filtered tweets design photos and videos are now integrated with their respective tweets rather than open in new separate window.
5)Real Time Notifications:
