Branches's mission is to reduce the noise in your Twitter timeline and thereby making it easy for you to read tweets. Branches does this by grouping tweets from the same handle/author over a period of time. This lets you follow any number of people on Twitter including frequent tweeters like newspapers, journalists etc. without allowing them to hijack your timeline. Branches is an experiment, so right now the app has minimum features and is not ready to replace your current favorite Twitter Client. Consider this an extension/add-on which provides you a different perspective to read Twitter. Of-course based on user feedback we look forward to adding more features and to become a full fledged Twitter Client.
