Twitter users often feel surprised and curious about why a topic can become a conversation and then it becomes a trending topic. To get rid of that curiosity, Twitter now has a new feature. This feature serves to provide a description or explain why a trending topic is a topic of conversation in cyberspace. This description will be in the form of a tweet or tweet that is relevant and pinned on a certain trending topic. The pinned tweet is not determined arbitrarily. Twitter uses an algorithm and has a special team to curate tweets that will be embedded in a trending topic. “This combination will determine whether a tweet can represent and reflect the trend that is currently popular,” wrote the Twitter in its official blog.

Twitter also said that in 2019, there were more than 500,000 people tweeting “why is this topic trending?”. Therefore, the company released this feature in response to these questions. In addition, the trending topic description feature was also created to reduce the spread of misinformation on the Twitter platform. This feature is being released gradually for Android and iOS Twitter users. As for the web version of Twitter, this feature will be present in the future.
