Twitter returned the chronological tape

Service refused it two years ago, but changed his mind.

Twitter users will now be able to view the tweet tape as before – in chronological order. To do this, it will be enough to remove the check mark in the settings. The representatives of the service told about this in a series of tweets.

This tick must be removed in order to include the chronological tape

In Twitter, explained that the algorithmic tape should show at the same time the latest and best tweets that may be of interest to the user. However, the algorithm does not always correctly understand this balance, so the company added an opportunity to return the chronological tape.

To do this, you need to go to the settings and uncheck “Show the best tweets”. Along with disabling the algorithmic tape, the service will stop showing the selection “you could skip”. In the near future, the company plans to add the ability to quickly switch between two newsfeeds.

Twitter began to introduce an algorithmic tape in 2016. At first the service showed only some tweets in the non-chronological order, but gradually the function expanded to the entire tape.

Recently, Twitter has become the second social network, which decided to move away from the idea of ​​an algorithmic tape: in March 2018 Instagram began to show more frequently the latest entries and allowed users to decide when to update it.
