Twitter Returns to its Default Algorithmic Feed, Moving the Chronological Feed to its Own Tab

Twitter is Changing its Default Feed Again, Switching Away from Chronological to Algorithmic

Twitter is yet again changing its default timeline, setting its algorithmic feed back to the default, moving the chronological feed to its own tab…

Twitter is returning to its algorithmic timeline once again. The last switch occurred in 2016 when the microblog transitioned from a reverse-chronological feed in 2016 to the algorithmically designed one we know today. But, that’s not going to be the case for much longer. The company is already rolling out an update for iOS that changes its default time behavior back to the algorithm. Soon, the same will be true for Android.

Twitter Returns to its Default Algorithmic Feed, Moving the Chronological Feed to its Own Tab

Twitter is moving its chronological feed to its own tab. Meaning that users must manually choose to see it, which in turn means it won’t be enabled or set to the default. Previously, people could select the specific way they wanted to see tweets presented, and it would remain there. (At least a while before defaulting back to the algorithmically generated feed.) Now, this option is about to undergo another change. However, it looks as though there is a way to set the timeline to a specific user’s preference.
