About Antenna

Antenna is an experiment by the FT. It is powered by tweets from accounts we trust. Only links to websites carefully selected by us can appear.

Who's it for?

It's for FT readers who don't have the time to be on Twitter all day, but who want to be tipped off about a variety of interesting stories from across the web.

How does it work?

FT Antenna updates throughout the day. It uses London time to define "Today", "Yesterday", and "This Week".

But how does it work?

The main scoring mechanism reflects the number of retweets, but there’s some scaling so that Twitter accounts with relatively few followers aren’t penalised.

What next?

If you like what you see and think it's useful, then tell your friends, family and colleagues. (And tell us. We'd love to hear from you!)
