The response to this change was mainly positive among users, many of whom suggested this will help reduce the "feedback loop" effect, wherein users only see tweets from the same people over and over again, thus reinforcing certain ways of thinking without ever introducing new thoughts from others who think differently.

Washington: Twitter is preparing an option for users to go back to its original chronological news feed, responding to complaints about its algorithmic system implemented two years ago.

As of right now, you can switch off the "Show the best Tweets first" setting.

Twitter has updated its app so you have this capability now, but it's a bit of a chore.

Not everyone was a fan of the algorithmic timeline, though, and in a surprise decision, Twitter announced that it will allow users to easily switch to a view that shows the classic chronological timeline. Now if you disable the "Show the best Tweets first". your most recent tweets will only be from people you follow. Meanwhile, today we updated the "Show the best Tweets first" setting.

Since 2016, the platform had highlighted relevant tweets to users on its timeline, though they weren't necessarily the latest tweets. After which, your tweets should appear in reverse chronological order. However, it also has received input from some Twitter members that occasionally they would like to see their Twitter feed in chronological order. Previously when turned off, you'd also see "In case you missed it" and recommended Tweets from people you don't follow.Our plan is to eventually replace this setting when the easier-to-access switch described above is available.

4/ 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.

'We ran an incredibly limited test to surface accounts that people were not engaging with to check if they'd like to unfollow them, ' the company said. How do you feel about the change?
