Twitter changes its category in the App Store from ‘social networking’ to ‘news’

After a quarter of slow user growth, Twitter changed its categorization in the Apple App Store from “social networking” to “news.” Instead of being in the same category as Facebook and Instagram where it was ranked in the top 10, Twitter is now the number one app in the “news” category, boosting its visibility to users. Sarah Perez writes that being a number one ranked app could also help Twitter’s “overall” ranking, and move it higher in Apple’s free app charts.
