Twitter is Forcing its Timeline Algorithm on iOS Users

Apple iPhone 12 and iOS 14 a Nightmare for Facebook

On the Twitter app, users could select whether they wanted to view the timeline in chronological order or according to an algorithm. Sadly, the most recent Twitter iOS update forces users to once again see algorithmically suggested tweets by default.

The Twitter app for the iPhone now divides the Home screen into two tabs: For You and Following, as many users have observed. The algorithm-recommended tweet is shown in the first. This means that you might see trending tweets from users who you do not follow and that you will not see tweets in the chronological order in which they were posted.

By selecting the Following tab, you can still access Twitter’s standard chronological timeline with tweets only from the accounts you follow. However, Twitter will redirect you to the For You tab after you close the application. The new design is eerily similar to one that Twitter initially debuted in early 2022 before pulling.

Users of the iOS app can now access the change, according to Twitter, but it’s unclear when users of the Android app will be able to do the same or if the company will change its mind. It’s important to note that third-party Twitter clients like Tweet Bot, which still show tweets in chronological order, are unaffected by this.
