Twitter is one of the most popular social network and microblogging websites, which is having more than 320M monthly active users from across the globe. Twitter was much different from Facebook. Features wise, options wise, looks wise, there were a lot of differences between Facebook and Twitter. Although, most of the people often prefer Facebook over Twitter yet Twitter is not that bad and that is why it is having more than 1B monthly unique visits with embedded tweets.

First, you can get popular Facebook posts from your friends, groups and pages. Second, latest Facebook posts from the same. Quite same feature has been arrived on Twitter few days back.
What is Best Tweets First on Twitter?
As mentioned before, Twitter has implemented an algorithmic timeline, which shows posts like Facebook does. This is called Best Tweets First.
