Here are the changes Twitter is making to your timeline

You will now be able to see the most recent posts as opposed to seeing the best posts first in your Twitter timeline.

Twitter Support announced that its modification to have the best tweets first was arrived at in the hope that users would find it more interesting.

They added that feedback has however proved otherwise and users want to see the most recent tweets first.

“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. 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,” wrote Twitter.


Users will now be in a position to choose which tweets they would prefer to see on their timeline.

“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. 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,” Twitter support wrote.
