HOW TO SEE TRENDING TOPICS ON TWITTER
To discover what is current in the world there is nothing like watching the trending topics on Twitter. The trends are set by the algorithm of the social network and tell you what is generating more debate in the networks at all times, so they become a tool as useful as double-edged since sometimes there are trending topics that rise to fame for a campaign organized to capture the attention of users or are sponsored. Be that as it may, this Twitter tab helps us get an idea of what is happening in the world in a fairly faithful way.
Trending topics on Twitter
To be able to see the trending topics on Twitter, we just have to open the application and press the magnifying glass icon that we will find at the bottom center of our screen. There we will see the topics that the application considers of interest to us, categorized into several sections. The first tab that we see, called ‘For you’, and collects the topics that the algorithm has determined as most relevant to us according to the use we make of our smartphone.
To know the trends of our country (in this case, Pakistan), click where it says ‘Trends’ and there we will find the current issues of that precise moment. Keep in mind that some trending topics do not last more than a few hours -even minutes-, so it is a tool that provides a very specific photo of the moment.
HOW TO KNOW THE TRENDING TOPICS OF TWITTER WORLDWIDE
If the national news tires you out and you are interested in knowing the trending topics on Twitter worldwide, you will have to change the settings slightly to see the trending topics from other parts of the world. Twitter no longer allows you to see the TTs at a global level (you would have to use an external tool like TweetDeck for this), but it separates them by country. To be able to see them, you will have to press the magnifying glass icon (at the bottom bottom), press the settings icon (top right) and access ‘Explore locations’. There you can determine the specific country from which you want to know its trending topics and the application will show them to you.
An important aspect of this function is that not only can you access the trends for all countries, but Twitter can also detail them by cities and regions.
HOW TO KNOW THE TRENDS OF TWITTER TODAY
The application does not include a tool that allows you how to know the trends of Twitter today. In general, it is very rare that the application presents you with a trend that has more than 24 hours, so the current factor is guaranteed, but there are web pages like Trendinalia that allow you to know what time a current topic was put . If you want to consult the trending topics in real time worldwide, Get Day Trends is a fairly reliable website that will help you get an idea of what is being tweeted around the world.
HOW TO AVOID CERTAIN TRENDING TOPICS ON TWITTER
If you want to know how to avoid certain trending topics on Twitter, when you see the list in your application, you will see that next to each one there is an icon with three dots. Click on it and you will be able to mark that trending topic that you consider inappropriate as not interesting for your tastes or directly as spam, so the application itself will detect that you are not interested in continuing to see those topics in your trends. You can also silence that trending topic by following the steps that we indicate in this article.
