Twitter heard your voices.
Two years ago, Twitter pulled the rug from under their users when they switched their chronological timeline to a strange relevance timeline. Users who were accustomed to the organization and common sense of reading tweets in the order they were posted were thrown off by Twitter's new endeavor. The social media site used algorithms that predicted what each user would be most interested in, based on their friends who reacted to tweets, their own like and share history, and other factors. The internet has collectively been begging Twitter to return to their old timeline method, and it looks like they were heard.
"We’ve learned that when showing the best Tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful," wrote Twitter on their own platform. "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," continued the statement. "You’ll see us test this in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, today we updated the “Show the best Tweets first” setting. When off, you’ll only see Tweets from people you follow in reverse chronological order. Previously when turned off, you’d also see “In case you missed it” and recommended Tweets from people you don’t follow."
