Twitter is making a semi-significant change to its design this week, beginning first on iOS. The change, which turns your own home display screen right into a tabbed setup of “For you” and “Following,” is already rolling out for some customers.
In a Tweet saying the change, Twitter says that the brand new format will present each “For you” and “Following” tabs on the prime of your Twitter app. By having each tabs accessible, a easy swipe between the 2 can get you into the algorithm-powered “For you” or again to the chronological “Following” timeline with better ease.
For a prolonged time frame, the choice to modify between these two timelines required you to faucet that bizarre sparkly star icon within the prime proper nook, then select between “For you” or “Latest.” The “Latest” possibility all the time confirmed you “newest Tweets from accounts you follow” and is completely the easiest way to take-in Twitter. For those that didn’t know this feature existed and have been coping with beneficial, algorithmic rubbish in your timeline throughout your keep on Twitter, I’m sorry.
See the Tweets you wish to see. Starting in the present day on iOS, swipe between tabs to see Tweets beneficial “For you” or Tweets from the accounts you’re “Following.”

When I began writing up this information, I wasn’t seeing the brand new tabbed expertise on my iPhone, however I’m now and have live-swapped the header picture to indicate it. Do be aware that Twitter didn’t point out if this might come to Android any day quickly. I can’t think about that this isn’t of their plans for all platforms, although. This change definitely looks like a transfer to convey extra consciousness to the 2 timeline choices as an alternative of letting people swap one time and then overlook, so making the change on Android along with iOS solely is smart.
While I’ll by no means use the “For you” web page, my solely actual problem right here is that I pin lists on the prime of my Twitter apps that I already swipe between. This appears to be including one more tab that I didn’t ask for. It presently can’t be eliminated. Maybe someday?
