Twitter to let users see tweets in chronological order again

Twitter has announced that it will give its users the alternative to structure their courses of events sequentially by quitting ‘showing the best Tweets first.’

Twitter will totally return your course of events to a non-algorithmic, invert sequential request, which is the way Twitter was initially composed and worked for quite a long time.

In a tweet sighted by Smartarenapost.com Twitter said It said that it is dealing with making an effortlessly available switch that would enable individuals to in a split second switch between an algorithmic or ordered course of events, however that meanwhile clients can deselect the “Show the best Tweets first” setting to accomplish this impact.

The tweets read: 1/ We’re working on new ways to give you more control over your timeline. But first, some context: Twitter helps you see what’s happening by showing the best Tweets for you based on your interactions.

2/ We’ve learned that when showing the best Tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful. However, we’ve heard feedback from people who at times prefer to see the most recent Tweets.

3/ Our goal with the timeline is to balance showing you the most recent Tweets with the best Tweets you’re likely to care about, but we don’t always get this balance right.

4/ So, we’re working on providing you with an easily accessible way to switch between a timeline of Tweets that are most relevant for you and a timeline of the latest Tweets. You’ll see us test this in the coming weeks.

5/ Meanwhile, today we updated the “Show the best Tweets first” setting. When off, you’ll only see Tweets from people you follow in reverse chronological order. Previously when turned off, you’d also see “In case you missed it” and recommended Tweets from people you don’t follow.

6/ Our plan is to eventually replace this setting when the easier-to-access switch described above is available. We’ll keep you updated and are listening to your feedback – let us know what you think!

Nonetheless, one twitter user, Emma Kinema  said individuals could utilize “quieted words” as a secondary passage to structure their timelines chronologically. The tweet went sensibly popular, with more than 18,00 retweets and just about 48,000 preferences at the time of writing.
