However, for people like Sean Spicer who choose to make use of Twitter’s Topics feature, it serves as a quick algorithmic peek into their soul.
Of course, it might be easy to discern some of this information just from checking out people’s timelines or profiles — Khosrowshahi calls himself a "gamer who doesn’t have enough time to play much" — in his own profile.
Time after time, when checking a particular Twitter user’s Topics page, we simply got the message that they weren’t following any.
To see what topics a person follows on Twitter, simply add /topics to the end of their account page in a browser.
The tweets they like, the accounts they follow, and their inane 280-character musings depict a sometimes not-so-complex picture of the platform’s users. And then there’s Topics.
Unveiled in November of last year, the mostly forgotten feature was pitched as a way to let you follow rather specific areas of interest (i. e. topics) rather than specific accounts.
Importantly, if your account is public, anyone can see what topics you’ve decided to follow — highlighting all the wonderful and strange stuff you go out of your way to keep abreast of.
