Twitter to offer users option to go back to ‘chronological feed

Twitter will soon let you switch to a chronological timeline

"We´ve learned that when showing the best tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful", the San Francisco company said. The rest of the tweets will be displayed right underneath, also in reverse chronological order, as always.

When the change is fully implemented, users will be able to easily switch between a "Best Tweets first" and a "Chronological order" timeline.

In the future, Twitter plans on adding a new setting that allows you to easily toggle between the displaying of tweets that Twitter feels are interesting and the displaying of only users you follow. "Previously when turned off, you'd also see "In case you missed it" and recommended tweets from people you don't follow", it noted. You'll see us test this in the coming weeks.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", Twitter explains.

FWIW. Twitter's ad targeting filters and ad units will not be directly affected by this timeline change. Spoiler: You don't. Algorithms make our lives easier, and on social media that means finding tweets we're more likely to engage with - with an unfortunate filter bubble side effect.

Newsday, Will Kavanaugh accuser testify?
Mike Braun, a former IN state legislator running against Donnelly, also criticised the timing and praised Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, President Trump dismissed the need for an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into her allegations.

Twitter continued: "We'll keep you updated and are listening to your feedback - let us know what you think!"

The question for advertisers is whether or not users will remain engaged with content on the platform as they opt out of Twitter's algorithm that shows content it has determined most relevant. Over the past two years, this algorithmic timeline completely changed users' Twitter feeds, self-selecting news and tweets that were popular even if they were less relevant to that particular user.

When using Twitter through a desktop browser, click on your profile picture at the top so that the menu appears. Well, it seems Twitter has had our prayers since they are planning to bring back the live timeline.

To turn the chronological sorting on, open the Twitter app's settings and go to "Content preferences".
