Twitter Finally Rolls Out Chronological Timeline To Android Users




Twitter has finally rolled out the chronological timeline feature to it's Android app. Last year, the social network announced that it would bring back the feature, though it didn't bring it right away.

When it eventually did, iOS users were the first to get the feature while those on Android had to wait till this year to get theirs.


To toggle for this feature on Android, the user is to locate the new 'sparkle' button at the top-left corner that controls this preference. Tap it and the app will prompt you with a sheet that either notes; "Latest Tweets show up as they happen' or "Home shows your top Tweets first," with the button to toggle below.
The chronological timeline is a feature that tries to show users live happenings while it's reverse does the opposite ...shows missed tweets or top-ranked tweets above the more recent tweets displayed in a chronological order.

Unfortunately, this change isn't permanent. When the user is away for a while, the feed switches back to the regular home.

Though its not permanent, it's way better than having no option at all. There is also a shortcut to quickly open 'Content preferences." After switching timelines, a snackbar will note the view you've selected, while the app bar also states "Home" or "latest tweets" next to your profile avatar.
