Again, we can choose the chronological timeline on Twitter. The company has decided undo changes you posted a few days agowith which he planned to put a twist on the way we see the publications that not really liked to the general public.
The previous update segmented our house into two parts. With the first, we saw the tweets in an order decided by the application’s algorithm; while in the second tab we could access the most recent tweets, which allowed us to view the content in chronological order. However, unlike the proposal prior to said update, the selected tab it always restarted when quitting the app and re-entering. This way, each time, we had to go through the Twitter Home run by the platform’s algorithm beforehand, even if we only wanted to see the most recent posts.
Now, however, the application decided to revert to its previous version. Thus, we can choose which Timeline we prefer, whether the algorithm-driven one, or the chronological mode. The advantage of this option is that saves the user’s preferred setting until he decides to change it, so we won’t have to go through the process of selecting the “Most Recent Tweets” tab every time we enter the app and want to see the beginning chronologically; option that many prefer.
The new version of Twitter is already on iOS, and soon on Android
The update is now available for iOS devices. This way, if you have an iPhone, you should already be able to experience the changes. If you still don’t see it, it’s only a matter of time before you can download it.
Users of Android will have to wait a little longer, in the same way those who use the social network in web mode. However, the company has confirmed that it will eventually arrive, so they just have to wait a bit.
According to 9to5Mac, the voice of users was quick to be heard when the platform decided to change the “classic” experience for one segmented into tabs. The aforementioned source comments that “many wanted the option to see the most recent Tweets by default”, and that is that Twitter had made things more complicated for your users.
Also, the tab bar to decide between one option or another consumed unnecessary screen space. Even though Twitter had allowed users to select one of two default tabs; This would have been an unnecessary and counterproductive option if we compared it to the old (now current) way of doing it.
The eternal fight of social networks with its beginnings
But Twitter isn’t the only one planning to change things. Recently, Instagram officials declared their intention to change the Home of their application. In this way they plan to offer the return of the chronological order for the beginning without displaying post suggestions.
Fortunately, it seems Twitter officials are listening to their users a little more. In fact, even before reverting the change, company spokesperson Shaokyi Amdo confirmed that this measure would be put in place “for now”. Thus, they offered a possibility of change in the future in case the users were not too convinced by the unnecessary new integration.
