"We want to help you get the most out of Twitter, no matter how much time you spend with it," Twitter's Gordon Luk, wrote in a blog post Thursday. "While your home timeline is a great place to browse through and engage with Tweets, we know it can be challenging to find the time to get through everything."

Twitter said the new service is aimed at helping you quickly catch up on the best tweets that are most relevant to you. You'll see top tweets from people you follow, trending stories, and more.

To create your Highlights, Twitter looks at things like the accounts and conversations that are popular among people you follow, tweets from people you're closely tied to, topics and events that are trending in your area or within your network, and people that are popular or trending among those you follow.

If you opt to receive Highlights, you'll get a notification on your phone twice daily letting you know your summary is ready. When you open the notification, you'll go directly to the Twitter app, where your Highlights will be displayed in a clean, new interface.

You can view an item by swiping from right to left. Then, when you have reached the last Highlight, another swipe will put you right back to your home timeline.

To enable Highlights, head over to your Settings, select your account handle, go to the mobile notifications menu, and check the Highlights box.
