Bringing Tweets to more people around the world

Every month, over 500 million people visit Twitter to see what’s happening around the world. From conversations around live events to breaking news to pandas playing in the snow, we want to make great content accessible for everyone — even if you’re not signed in. Today, we’re excited to announce improvements to twitter.com that will bring those great Tweets to even more people across the globe.

We’re rolling out a home timeline to people across 23 countries* who visit the twitter.com homepage on their mobile devices. Before today, you could see individual Tweets but it was hard to discover stories and conversations happening on Twitter without signing in. Now, you can check out a news story as it unfolds, dive into the play-by-play discussions around a game, and then come back again to see that exchange between two rappers everyone’s been talking about. It’s real-time and straight from the source, just like the Twitter experience for those who log in. 

We’re also expanding our refreshed twitter.com homepage on web, which is already available in the US and Japan, to every country noted below. Starting today, anyone can explore and discover different topics and stories as they occur, including some that are tailored just for you based on your location and activity on Twitter.

Bringing Tweets to more people around the world

We’re passionate about bringing you the best conversations, news, and stories as they happen around the world. This is the next step towards that vision. We hope you enjoy these homepage changes and experience a better glimpse of the best of Twitter.

As always, to further customize your Twitter experience, sign up or sign in on twitter.com, or download our iOS or Android apps.
