Twitter again rolls out its resolution to make use of a twin-tab structure on the microblogging platform and has switched again to the unique structure that exhibits the newest tweets on the highest. The twin-tab structure — which began rolling out a final week. The company designs this to push customers to an algorithmically serve timeline as a substitute for a reverse-chronological feed. The rollout had obtained vital pushbacks from customers. Earlier this month, there is a top that Twitter will quickly get a podcasts tab.
The twin-tab layout by Twitter makes it harder to switch to the reverse-chronological feed. The change first available for iOS users. It is yet to roll out on the Android as well as Web versions of the microblogging site. The two timelines — Home and Latest. It is design to stack tweets based on an algorithm and shows tweets on your timeline arranged in reverse-chronological order respectively.
Twitter Reverses Twin-Tab Layout Decision
The move announces via tweet. It means that everyone will now see the ‘Home’ timeline by default — tweets curated by the Twitter algorithm — rather than the ‘Latest Tweets’ view that they might prefer. Those tweets are still there, but via a pinned list that has to be selected manually. Every time the Twitter app is closed completely, the algo-generated timeline will come back to the fore.
This decision caused a backlash as several users shared their criticism of the change even calling it ‘Twitter’s worst product decision in ages’. Twitter’s decision to revert to the original design followed this pushback it received from the users.
Earlier this month, engineer Jane Manchun Wong sports a dedicated tab on the Twitter app for Podcasts. The microphone icon on the Twitter mobile app indicates the arrival of an upcoming feature. Tapping the button will likely lead to a new Podcasts page. The development comes a few months after the company introduced a Podcast-like feature on Twitter Spaces that allows users to listen to a recording of the discussions on the platform. Listeners and hosts can reach out to a wider audience with recordings of Spaces.
