Your Twitter Feed Can Be a Chronological Timeline Again

In the "coming weeks", you'll find a toggle that lets you choose between a timeline that is most relevant and one that shows you the latest Tweets in order. Mute these terms and get your Twitter feed back in chronological order. In essence, it'll be the best of both worlds, allowing users to follow along at a frenetic pace, or step away for a while and trust that Twitter's algorithms will surface tweets you're most likely to engage with. Previously, when the setting was turned off, Twitter would still display missed tweets, tweets from recommended accounts and a not exactly "pure" chronological timeline.

Then, because tweets from certain followers didn't get prominent placing, you were less likely to interact with their tweets-and even more unlikely to see their tweets moving forward.

But then the social networks decided that algorithmic timelines, which sort tweets, status updates, and uploads by relevance, would be more engaging.

Twitter has updated the "Show the best Tweets first" setting.

Cristiano Ronaldo's red for Juventus against Valencia was harsh
Ronaldo's first opportunity to redeem himself after the red card will come on Sunday, when Juventus visit Frosinone in Serie A. Ronaldo may now be suspended for Juventus' match against Manchester United at Old Trafford on matchday 3 of the group stage.

This is sure to be a welcome change for many Twitter power users out there, as it'll get them closer to the way Twitter used to be, giving you a reverse chronological feed without extra tweets popping up from accounts that they don't follow. Now Twitter is making a change that should make those people happy.

In the future, this update to boost visibility and make the feature to access could pave the way for an easy system to toggle between curation and a real-time feed without all the bloat. It could easily be made a one-click option on the menu bar between Messages and the Twitter (blue bird) icon.

It's great that Twitter is finally listening to its users after so much criticism for turning a blind eye to things like abuse and third-party app support. According to reports from other users, this effectively brings Twitter back to a standard chronological sorting. However, if users switch to the chronological timeline, they may begin to miss out on many viral tweets, which has become a defining part of the platform.
