Twitter is bringing back the chronological timeline and making recommended tweets optional

Twitter is bringing back the chronological timeline and making recommended tweets optional

Sick of seeing the same five tweets every time you open Twitter? Rejoice! The platform is bringing some much-craved chronology to the feed.

The platform announced - on Twitter - that it is working on a way for users to organise their timelines. In the coming weeks, it'll begin to test the ability to switch between both chronological and algorithmic feeds.

 "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," it said as part of an announcement.

 Let me choose

For the last couple of years, Twitter has been operating with a 'best tweets' algorithm that picks out tweets a user may find interesting and places them at the top of the timeline to be seen first.

While the algorithm was a good way to highlight what is trending among followers, not all users were a fan of it. 

From today, Twitter's 'show the best tweets first' is a removable option. When off, tweets will simply appear in the order they are posted. 

All Twitter needs now is a tweet edit button and a verification application and we'll be happy.
