After a brief experiment, Twitter is rolling out a tabbed home user interface that helps to streamline custom lists on the platform…
The problem with the Twitter timeline is the fact that it’s largely filled with posts that appear out-of-context. It presents a very problematic situation of having to go through great lengths to understand the meaning of every tweet. But now, the social microblog is doing something about the chaos.
Twitter Introduces Tabbed Home User Interface for Better Content Organization
Last year, Twitter began testing “customizable timelines,” in June. Thereafter, it added the feature to the iOS platform in September. Android users didn’t see the option, until now.
It’s available through the side menu. Just launch the Android app, swipe right to open said side menu, tap on Lists, then hit the pin icon next to any list to enable quick access. For it to save, it’s necessary to close the Twitter app — remove it from Recents — and launch it again to take effect.
Right now, it’s only showing up on Alpha version 8.33.0, and not on other versions of the Android app.
Customizable timelines that are easy to access? We’re thinking about ways to do this! One idea we had is for you to be able to swipe to your lists from home. If you’re in the test tell us what you think! pic.twitter.com/g5WMaNZ57N
