MC2 Post 1741 Introducing Custom Timelines: create timelines of Tweets for Everyone

From:   https://dev.twitter.com

Today we’re introducing custom timelines to give you more control over how Tweets are organized and delivered on the Twitter platform.

Custom timelines are an entirely new type of timeline –– 
one that you create.

You name it, and choose the Tweets you want to add to it, either by hand or programmatically using the API (more on that below). This means that when the conversation around an event or topic takes off on Twitter, you have the opportunity to create a timeline that surfaces what you believe to be the most noteworthy, relevant Tweets.

Nick BILTON,  was a guest on Sunday's TWIT Netcast with Leo Laporte.  And was interesting enough for getting me to pick up the book on Audible, my favorite mode of reading, these days.

I also revert to my   'old school reading ways and read  (huh?)

 physical books as well.

For example, I'm also reading an old paperback copy of  "Enders Game" by Orson Scott Card.  I remember having a hard time reading it many years ago.  But, hopefully, I'm in a different place now after re-reading
(on audible)  Red Mars, which I really enjoyed.  So Enders is going to have a tough time matching that, but so-far it's holding up pretty well.
