The ‘Topics’ feature lets people follow specific subjects of their interest, allowing them to see more content on these subjects on their timeline.

“The addition of Hindi Topics demonstrates our commitment to diversity of conversations across languages. We are excited to see these vibrant conversations flourish on Twitter in India,” said Manish Maheshwari, MD, Twitter India.

Within a Hindi Topic, people will be able to see Tweets in Devanagari script, as well as Hindi speech, typed in the Roman alphabet. Indian users will be able to follow conversations about a Topic like they have been following accounts – with one single tap. Topic suggestions will appear in the timeline and in the search bar based on what is most relevant to them.
