Twitter no longer forces you to the “For You” timeline on the web • Zoo House News

In another flip-flop step, Twitter says it will now remember the feed — the algorithmic “For You,” or chronological “Following” — that its users have chosen across the web. This change will relieve many who had complained that the social network defaulted to showing them the algorithmic timeline every time they visited the service.

The move is the latest in a series of changes Twitter has made to its dual timeline implementation over the past few days. Earlier this month, algorithmic timeline was made standard on iOS for the first time. On the web, things are a bit more confusing.

January 13: Twitter rolled out the dual timeline update on the web, but at the time, the social network remembered your choice. Jan. 20: The company made the “For You” feed the web default when users first opened Twitter in a tab or refreshed the page. January 24: Now Twitter remembers your selection again. World peace.

Twitter also added that a similar update will be rolling out to Twitter’s iOS and Android apps. Also, there won’t be an algorithmic timeline as the standard for mobile apps any time soon.

Have any of you (all) asked that your timeline default to where you last left it?

Starting today, when you close Twitter on the web from the For You or Following tabs, you’ll revert to the most recently opened timeline. iOS and Android coming soon!

Many Power Twitter users who have used third-party Twitter apps have never had to deal with the algorithmic timeline. But now that Elon Musk & Co. have killed third-party apps by changing API rules, users have no choice but to use the official Twitter app or website.

This week’s move adds to Musk’s growing list of reversed decisions. The filing includes withdrawing the newly launched Twitter Blue program in November and removing conditions that prohibited users from posting links to other social media profiles in December.
