Twitter App Gets World Cup 'Timelines' in New Update

903271_largerTwitter has updated its iOS app with a feature called "World Cup Timelines", which allows users to see relevant tweets about all the games during the month-long 2014 FIFA World Cup.
New for World Cup:

The World Cup Timeline is where all the action happens. In addition to Tweets from your network, you will see relevant Tweets from teams, players, coaches, press, venues, and celebs.

Are you watching the match? Follow it on Twitter and take a peek behind the scenes. See Tweets about the match from teams, players, coaches, press, venues, and celebs from inside and outside the stadium.
The new features mirror changes Twitter has made to its web interface, which allow users to follow Twitter timelines for specific games featuring tweets by relevant fans, journalists, analysts and more. A couple days ago, Twitter also re-introduced "Hashflags", which automatically insert flags from the countries participating in the World Cup when certain hashtags, like "#BRA" for Brazil, are used.

Twitter is also planning to roll out Timelines for individual teams, including lists of each countries' players and match scorecards that update scores live.

Twitter is a free universal app that's available on the App Store. [Direct Link]

So how do I activate this new timeline?

Am I being a bit dim?


I guess you're supposed to swipe on the Timelines tab, but they seem to have forgotten to activate it.
