Twitter's bringing again your default timeline — hopefully for good, this time

the placement will now hold in thoughts which tab you chose final

Twitter seems to have a contact of id dysphoria that even predates its buy by non-reclusive billionaire Elon Musk. regardless of its preliminary success being rooted in well timed, consumable blurbs, the agency continually tries to push the style of algorithmic dwelling feed made effectively-preferred by slower-paced, longer-type social media websites. fortunately, prospects of the platform by no means appear to let Twitter stray too faraway from its origins.


Earlier this week, Twitter chop up its dwelling feed into two tabs: For you and Following. the essential tab used an algorithm to advocate content material you is liable to be eager about, with out a lot deal with when the tweets had been posted. The second tab, Following, was Twitter’s basic reverse-chronological timeline, containing solely posts from accounts you observe, and always exhibiting you the latest information first. The tabs is liable to be swiped between for simple entry, however tapping the sparkle icon on the very larger of the feed not gave you different to set For you as a consequence of the essential view — in impression, the algorithm was now the default, and there was no escaping it.

After predictable backlash, CEO Elon Musk introduced that the agency would work on a attribute that will hold in thoughts which of the tabs you final visited. That attribute was formally unveiled by the Twitter crew immediately — now, the on-line mannequin of Twitter remembers which tab you final chosen and routinely defaults to that possibility if you subsequent load your particular person dwelling feed.

Twitter says this attribute will make its methodology to the Android and iOS apps inside the approaching days, however Android Police tipster Moshe studies that the latest alpha construct of the app was already exhibiting this habits for them. Sadly, this wasn’t the case as quickly as we did our personal testing, which might level to an account-based mostly or server-side rollout for the attribute on cell.

do you should want to try your luck and see do you should would possibly get the Android app to hold in thoughts your choice for the Following tab, you will have different to sideload a extra latest mannequin. For most interesting outcomes, try the latest alpha launch of Twitter from APKMirror.
