Twitter recently began adding tweets to your timeline that have been favorited by people you follow. The decision has been a controversial one, but it looks like it’s here to stay. Twitter has now formally changed its definition of your home timeline to note that it will add in content that it thinks you’ll want to see. Previously, Twitter had this definition on it’s “What’s a Twitter timeline?” page: What’s in your home timeline: When you sign in to Twitter, you’ll land on your home timeline. Your home timeline displays a stream of Tweets from accounts you have chosen to follow on Twitter. The newest updates are at the top. You can reply, Retweet, or favorite a Tweet from within the timeline. Clicking anywhere on a Tweet in your timeline expands the Tweet, so you can see photos, videos, and other information related to that Tweet.
