Twitter introduces weekly e-mail digest feature

Twitter has announced rolling out a new weekly e-mail digest that features the “most relevant” tweets and stories shared by the people you follow on the micro-blogging website.

The new feature comes a few months after the social networking company took over Summify, a startup that compiled news from a user's various social networks in daily e-mails. After acquisition, Summify's team moved from Vancouver to Twitter's headquarters in San Francisco.

Announcing the new feature, Twitter in a blog post said that the stories in the e-mail digest will be showcased much like they are under the Discover tab on the website – that has a headline, summary and then followed by a row of thumbnail images of the tweeter. To read the story, users need to click the headline. Moreover, users can also go through related tweets from the people they are following. Users can directly tweet a post from e-mail digest as well.

“This new email digest also features the most engaging Tweets seen by the people you follow, even if you don’t follow those who wrote them. You can see who from your network retweeted or favorited these Tweets and click “View details” to retweet, favorite, reply or view the conversation around them,” adds Twitter.

The new e-mail will be available for users across globe over the next few weeks. Users can manage their preferences for this new digest in Twitter's Notification Settings.
