Twitter, now X, was once a useful site for breaking news. The Baltimore bridge collapse shows those days are long gone.

    I thought you said news. This just looks like spam?

      Yeah sorry, my subscriptions aren’t the best example of the content you can subscribe to. I mostly follow tech news and deals. My intent with the screenshot was to showcase the general layout of the app. You can subscribe to any RSS feed you want though, like traditional news sources about non-tech things.

      Here’s an example of what that could look like (I made a folder with 3 traditional news sources and pinned it to the bottom nav bar):

      I just gave it a whirl out of curiosity. It’s kind of garbage in, garbage out. Subscribe to good RSS news feeds, and you get good stuff. Subscribe to Gizmodo blog spam, and you get blog spam.
