Twitter has launched a new 'while you were away' service which recaps important tweets users may have missed since their last login.

The new feature includes what the micro blogging site thinks to be the best tweets to the top of a user's timeline the next time they open their Twitter account, The Guardian reported.

It works like Facebook's news feed that presents status updates and posts in a ranked manner.

It is the first major Twitter feature beyond promoted tweets and adverts to sort tweets in a non-chronological fashion, the report added.

"Every time you open the Twitter app, you'll see something great," Twitter said when it announced the new feature as part of its "Timeline Highlights" improvements.

The new feature aims at preserving important tweets that could get drowned out by the rapid flow of tweets on a daily basis.

More than 500 million tweets are sent a daily basis, with many users following hundreds of accounts. Whereas Facebook has 1.3 billion users to Twitter's 284 million.
