My First Twitter Custom Timeline

Yesterday, Twitter launched a new feature called custom timelines. Here’s a description from their blog:

Custom timelines are an entirely new type of timeline –– one that you create. You name it, and choose the Tweets you want to add to it, either by hand or programmatically using the API. This means that when the conversation around an event or topic takes off on Twitter, you have the opportunity to create a timeline that surfaces what you believe to be the most noteworthy, relevant Tweets.

– Brian Ellin (Twitter Developers Blog)

Basically, this allows you to curate tweets and others to subsequently follow your curation if they are interested. Since I’m an advocate for using the gear you have to take photos and an owner of a Nexus 4, I decided to start a custom timeline for photos taken with a Nexus smartphone. The goal is to showcase photos that have been taken leveraging only the respective camera’s built-in functionality (i.e. HDR and panorama) and, more importantly, have not been edited. This way, a photo can be realized with respect to its camera’s capability and owner’s creativity.

You can view my custom timeline, Nexus Photography, in its entirety here.

A preview has also been added to the sidebar, where it will remain for future viewing.
