Topic suggestions will appear in your timeline and in search based on what the users tend to look for and already follow on Twitter.

Previously, users had to do all the work by manually searching for the topic, following certain accounts or looking in the Explore Tab for the latest news. Now, Twitter gives the user the option of seeing the most relevant and interesting Tweets about what the user cares about with a single tap, and the conversation will be presented to the user.
Users will first see Topic follow prompts in their timeline based on what they follow similar to how new accounts are found. The user will start to notice tweets and accounts related to the chosen topic in their feed soon after. Twitter says the suggestions will get better as it learns more about the users interests in topics.
Once a user follows a topic, they will also be manage the Topics they follow directly from the menu or on their timeline. The feature will come to everyone over the next few months.
