TWITTER is about to get a whole lot more personal with the rollout of a new feature.

The latest addition to Twitter, known as Highlights, is a simple summary of the most interesting things on your feed delivered to you via a push notification.

Staff Software Engineer at Twitter, Gordon Luk, said the feature was a vital new element to the social media platform.

"We use a variety of methods to work through the high volume of tweets so we can figure out what people want to see," he told news.com.au

"We look 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 people you follow.
