Twitter finally brings back chronological timelines

  • Twitter will soon give you the option of viewing its classic reverse chronological timeline

2/ We've learned that when showing the best Tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful. After which, your tweets should appear in reverse chronological order.

If the "Show the best Tweets first" setting was disabled, your timeline will display the tweets from the users you follow first, but Twitter would still inject a "In case you missed it" section that would display tweets from people you do not follow.

Then, because tweets from certain followers didn't get prominent placing, you were less likely to interact with their tweets-and even more unlikely to see their tweets moving forward.

Twitter has updated its app so you have this capability now, but it's a bit of a chore. Will it solve all the ills of Twitter, substantially reduce trolling, and make for an entirely changed platform? In a series of Tweets, the company explained that it is also working on an "easily accessible" way for users to switch between chronological and relevant tweets-based timelines.

In the statement, Twitter said that while people who use its algorithm-based feed find the service to be "more relevant and useful", it also acknowledged that some people prefer to see just see the latest tweets.

Anita Hill came forward in 1991 to say that then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her. Without Kennedy on the court, the justices are split 4-4 between liberals and conservatives.

An option to switch off the "Show best tweets first" feature in the account settings has always been available but unchecking this box didn't switch Twitter back to an entirely pure chronological timeline.

However, Twitter intends to provide an easy-access switch that will enable people to toggle between the two approaches.

Twitter announced this evening that they are giving you back the chronological timeline you never told them to take away.

Starting today, Twitter has announced in a tweet a change in the setting's behavior so that those who wish to view only their most recent tweets can do so. According to reports from other users, this effectively brings Twitter back to a standard chronological sorting. To flip the "Show the best tweets first" toggle off, go into the settings, select "Content preferences", and flip the toggle in there.
