Key Specifications:

  • Twitter brings a new feature that makes it easy to switch between Home timeline and latest Tweets
  • The change is also coming to Android and Web soon
  • Home timeline is the feed that you see by default when you open Twitter.

Social media giant Twitter rolls out its latest feature to ensure ease of use for its millions of users. The new feature makes it easy for users to switch between the Home timeline and the feed with ‘Latest Tweets’.

For the uninitiated, Home timeline is the feed that you see by default when you open Twitter. ‘Latest’ timeline is enabled after clicking on the ‘spark’ icon that lets you switch to the latest tweet first option. But, this is changing. Now, you can switch between Home and Latest tweets without the need of repeatedly tapping the sparkle icon. The new feature will make recent posts more visible and intuitive in the Latest feed.

“The Home and Latest timelines are now just a swipe away for everyone on iOS, and soon on Android and web. Tap the icon to pin (or unpin) the Latest timeline to your Home tab for easy access,” tweeted the social media platform.

Twitter new feature will be available to iOS users first

The new update is rolling out first to Twitter on iOS, and will soon be unveiled to Android phones and the web. The Home and Latest timelines were initially tested by Twitter in October 2021. The company decided to roll the feature considering the positive feedback it got.

Unlike Twitter, Instagram is bringing a chronological feed option this year. Instagram’s update is, though, a result of the intense scrutiny and pressure built by the US Congress.

In other news, Twitter launched its website on the Tor (The Onion Router) network according to an announcement made by software developer and internet security evangelist Alec Muffett on Twitter.  This move from the company comes at a time when the Russian government has banned access to sites like Twitter, Facebook and some news platforms in an apparent attempt to cut off the domestic audience from news and opinions from around the world.
