Twitter is Going Chronological Again
Finally—Twitter is switching back to chronological timelines… if you want. After changing the timeline to show “best tweets first”, it received mixed reactions. Many tweeters were not happy with the non-chronological timeline, leading Twitter to making it an optional feature.
Before, Twitter had been optimizing which content users will find more interesting based off various algorithms. But, this also defeated the purpose of “Breaking News”.
Currently, the new toggle is in a testing phase, and only appearing for certain users. But, we’re preparing for it to hit the entire community soon.
