Twitter has added a custom timelines feature designed to give users more control over how they see tweets in their feed. Users can create and name custom timelines around a specific topic or event, and then they can choose only the most noteworthy or relevant tweets to add to the timeline. Custom timelines borrow from Twitter's Lists feature, which allows you to keep track of tweets from groups of Twitter users under lists like "Friends" or "News."
