Good morning, 

Twitter announced Wednesday it tested a new feature that gives suggestions to users on who to unfollow.

A Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to Slate that the company wants people to have relevant timelines, and one way of doing that is by having users unfollow people who they don’t engage with regularly.
