Ever since its conception, posts on your Twitter timeline appears in a reverse chronological manner. That will soon change, however, as the online social networking service is reportedly planning to shift to an algorithm-based timeline as early as next week.
The new approach that Twitter will supposedly use on its timeline will be similar to how Facebook shows posts. Instead of displaying most recent tweets, an algorithm will curate all tweets and display it on a user’s timeline based on what it decides to be relevant and timely for a particular user.
It has been said that Twitter began experimenting on means to improve the user experience, and one of the ways the social media site thinks it can do that is to introduce a new way of displaying tweets on users’ timeline.
At press time, it remains unclear if Twitter will strictly impose the new algorithm-based timeline or if it will just a mere option that users can just disable at will. Moreover, the exact date of when the roll out will take place also remains to be announced.
