In addition to people and company accounts, now you can also follow Twitter Topics and view content related to it on your iPhone and iPad. After you follow a Topic on Twitter, you will see Tweets, events, and ads about that. In future, you may also be matched or recommended with other similar interests.
Twitter Topics are public, and anybody who can see your full profile can see what you follow. Similar to Twitter accounts, you have the control to follow and unfollow these anytime you like. You may even tell Twitter when you are not interested in a Topic and see less or none of those. Let’s check out the various ways to do so.
How to Follow Twitter Topics on iPhone
There are four primary places from where you can follow Topics on Twitter.
#1. From Your Home Timeline
Step #1. Scroll through your Twitter Home timeline as you do. From time to time, you will see suggestions that Twitter thinks you are interested in.
Step #2. When you see a topic of your liking, tap the Follow button next to the name.

This method is slightly better than the above one.
Step #1. From the bottom row of the Twitter app, tap on the Search icon. You will see For you on the top left.
Step #2. Scroll down the list of personalized trends, and then you will have topics that Twitter thinks you are interested in.
