Twitter is getting rid of the 'Discover' tab

social media Updated: Apr 09, 2015 14:09 IST

Twitter has killed its Discover tab and has instead decided to focus on Recaps and MagicRecs.

The tab was a favorite of Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey but has been stagnant for some time, reported​ The Verge.

Recap is the selection of tweets marked "While You Were Away" that pops up when users open the app. It shows everything that has been trending on the user's network. MagicRecs, on the other hand, provides recommendations of what to read and who to follow.

On its official blog, Twitter wrote: "We know that trends aren’t always self-explanatory, so now you’ll see a description below each trend," the company wrote on its blog. "Since trends tend to be abbreviations without context, like #NYFW, a description will make it clear that this trend is about New York Fashion Week. The new trends experience may also include how many Tweets have been sent and whether a topic is trending up or down."
