Twitter is set to introduce a major change in its timeline display.
The social media site is about to change timeline views from a chronological order to an algorithmic view.
This means that Twitter chooses for you which tweet it deems most suitable to display at any given point in time – Just like Facebook.
According to Buzzfeed, the new feature will be introduced as early as next week. It is however unknown if Twitter users will have to chose between chronological and algorithmic views.
Twitter users all over the world have responded to this news with despair. Many would prefer twitter to remain the way it is while a few others think its okay to try an algorithmic timeline.
See their tweets below.
