Twitter Adds Option for Viewing Your Timeline Chronologically

As of today, Twitter is introducing a new option that will allow iOS users to easily view their tweets in a chronological order, a feature Twitter users have wanted for quite some time.

The chronological feed option can be accessed by tapping on a sparkle-shaped icon at the top right of the Twitter app, which changes the view between latest tweets and the current top tweets option.


Twitter originally used a reverse chronological feed, showing the newest tweets at the top of the app before switching to a timeline that places a selection of top tweets first.

It's been years since Twitter switched to the top tweets timeline style, and many Twitter users have missed being able to view content chronologically.


Twitter in September introduced an option to turn off the "Show the best Tweets first" feature, but today's new toggle goes further and makes it easier to get a chronological timeline view.

Twitter says the chronological feed toggle is available on iOS today and will roll out to the web and Android devices soon.

Yep. Tweetbot is where its at. If Twitter ever screws them over and they go away, then I won't use Twitter.

This feature is very poorly implemented because every day it resets to the horribly annoying algorithmic feed and has to be reset.

I'm not sure this new button is any different from:
1. Tap on your profile icon
2. Choose: Settings and privacy
3. Choose: Content preferences
4. Disable "Show the best Tweets first"
I think this new feature is just a shortcut they added because the other option was hard to find.

So basically giving back a feature that was once available and calling it an enhancement?

I can’t find the sparkle icon on my device. Is it a US exclusive feature or someting like that?



Sparkle icon not showing up for me either, U.S. based.

Don't you dare follow their same method. If you stop creating GIFs I think there'll be an uproar.

This, among many other things, is/was a reason I'm using Tweetbot.
