Micro blogging platform, Twitter is to start curating tweets on live events.

The social site said it plans major changes to make its real-time news feed more user friendly.

Dubbed Project Lightning, the changes will let users follow events instead of just people, and instantly upload photos and videos that can be shared across websites, social news and entertainment website Buzzfeed reported on Thursday.

Editors will curate the most visually appealing and relevant tweets about say, a red-carpet event or shooting, and present them in one place, so that users need not be flooded with every single tweet as it is posted.

 Twitter’s mobile app will show both pre-scheduled events and breaking news events.

Twitter spokeswoman Rachel Millner confirmed the report but declined to comment further.

About one billion people have visited the Twitter website, but only 302 million are users.
