After Facebook, now Twitter has introduced an algorithmic timeline, sorting tweets based on what Twitter finds that users want to read.
Currently, Twitter’s feed follows the basic chronological order, but similar to Facebook the microblogging giant is now adopting this new method to make its feed more readable though it still remains unsure if Twitteratis will be given an option for an algorithmic feed.
This update might also prove to be a disgrace as the sole purpose of the platform is to allow people to put across their words to the world.
Twitter is constantly updating itself to make it more accessible and handy to a majority of users, thus staying strong in the competitive market of Snapchat, Facebook and more by constantly engaging its current users with easy access and attracting more.
Last week Twitter announced to build its platform and be easily accessible to the world; it rolled out an update which reformed its homepage allowing users to view tweets and trends without signing in.
Twitter already tested the algorithmic feed with a tiny user group, and now plans to roll it out for all.
UPDATE: Jack Dorsey later revealed that Twitter has no intentions of re-doing its timeline through a tweet.
Hello Twitter! Regarding #RIPTwitter: I want you all to know we’re always listening. We never planned to reorder timelines next week.
