Twitter has decided to use a twin-tab layout on the microblogging platform and reverted to the original layout that shows the latest tweets at the top. The twin-tab layout – launched last week – is designed to push users into an algorithmically served timeline instead of a reverse-chronological feed. The rollout received significant pushback from users. Earlier this month, it was also tipped that Twitter could soon get a dedicated podcast tab.
Twitter’s twin-tab layout basically made it difficult to switch between reverse-chronological feeds. The change was initially made available to iOS users and has not yet been rolled out to Android as well as web versions of the microblogging site. Two timelines – Home and Latest – were designed to stack tweets based on an algorithm and show tweets in your timeline sorted in reverse-chronological order, respectively.
The layout was designed in such a way that the Home tab showing the algorithmic feed was set to the default option. The decision sparked a backlash as several users criticized the change, even calling it “Twitter’s worst product decision of all time.” The decision to return to the original design of Twitter follows this pushback from users.
We’ve heard you – some of you always want to see the latest tweets first We switched the timeline again as we explored other options and removed the tabbed experience for now. https://t.co/euVcPr9ij6
