Twitter says it has heard the people and will accommodate their number one request: the ability to view tweets in the order they were published. This generally means in reverse chronological order, which is how Twitter operated until 2016 when it introduced the algorithmic feed. The company made the announcement in a thread on Twitter. "We’re working on new ways to give you more control over your timeline," said the social network. "We’ve learned that when showing the best Tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful. However, we've heard feedback from people who at times prefer to see the most recent Tweets. Our goal with the timeline is to balance showing you the most recent Tweets with the best Tweets you’re likely to care about, but we don’t always get this balance right. So, we’re working on providing you with an easily accessible way to switch between a timeline of Tweets that are most relevant for you and a timeline of the latest Tweets." The company said it will test this feature over the next few weeks, but didn't provide specifics concerning how it might work.
