The CEO of Twitter revealed today that new users of the social networking site will be able to generate a pre-populated following stream, without following anyone in the first place.

Dick Costello’s announcement came most probably as a result of the fact that over 500 million Twitter accounts sit largely unused, or “logged out”. Many have cited this new initiative as a way to hold more new users back and to make the experience of setting up Twitter less daunting. Users will be given a page of interests they can choose from which will automatically lead to a stream of Tweets from relevant accounts. ‘Interests’ include “Popular Accounts”, “Sports”, “Technology” and “Funny” among others.
