Twitter testing 'Fave People' timeline, tracks favourite Twitter...

Twitter is reportedly testing a new feature that will allow users to go through a timeline for favourited people. The new feature is dubbed as 'Fave People'.

The new feature is currently available in Twitter's alpha Android app. Currently in testing phase, it may take few more weeks before the general release. The app, which also features a swipe-able top menu, includes 'Fave People,' alongside the more familiar Home, Activity and Discover sections.

The feature is similar to Facebook's favourited friends, where users could star them on their profile. The favourited friends delivered a separate timeline, along with an option to turn on notifications for such updates. It's not yet confirmed whether the new feature will ever see light of the day. The new feature is considered to be a simplified version of Twitter's current lists.
