CHRONOLOGICAL TIMELINES ARE COMING BACK TO TWITTER


Majority of the users on social media all know the struggle of scrolling through your timeline and see the same five posts you saw an hour ago, over and over and over again.

That is the joy of an algorithmically-sorted feed but it's not something you have to live with, not on Twitter and not any more. The company's CEO, Jack Dorsey, has confirmed that they're bringing back the chronological timeline.

The company said that it's testing a button to display the tweets by post time, instead of showing an algorithmically-picked feed. This will give users the ability to toggle between algorithm-based and chronological timelines. The power is in the user's hands.



In 2016 when the service introduced the algorithmic timeline, Twitter user's were really not happy. Since then, users have been demanding the return of the chronological timeline, and unlike other social media platforms, Twitter has listened to its users. On this subject, at least.

Soon you will finally be able to follow stories without going directly to profiles and see tweets that might've been filtered out by the Great Wall of Algorithmia. Once the feature gets broader reach, of course.
