Twitter is now testing a new button that will let the users see the tweets in a chronological order. It is a home screen button that lets you easily switch from its default algorithmic timeline that shows the best tweets first, and the reverse chronological order of feed that only shows the tweets of people you follow.
Before this announcement, Twitter has been using a default setting that will show the tweets default algorithmic timeline, which means, the best and famous tweets is seen first. Twitter made an option though to switch into the chronological order, but this option can only be found in the settings.
It is a bit time-wasting especially for someone who does a lot of things in Twitter every single second, that’s why the company has promised that they will make this option to be more accessible in the near future. And now the long wait is over, as a little Twitter sparkle icon in the top can now be used to open a menu to switch between Top Tweets and Latest Tweets, and an additional link to your content settings.
This update has been recently twitted by Kayvon Beykpour, Twitter’s VP of Product, saying “We want to make it easier to toggle between seeing the latest tweets the top tweets. So we’re experimenting with making this a top-level switch rather than buried in the settings. Feedback welcome.. what do you think?”
Sometimes you want to see the latest Tweets, first. We’re testing a way for you to make it easier to switch your timeline between the latest and top Tweets. Starting today, a small number of you will see this test on iOS. pic.twitter.com/7NHLDUjrIv

As we can see, it is still an experimental feature, so as usual, it is only available for a limited number of iOS app users, and its support for worldwide users is still unknown. The company is also open for any feedback to make further changes if there is any room for it.
There is also an additional feature that Twitter has been testing out. One of this additional option is the feature that will automatically revert you back into default algorithmic timeline order if you are gone for a long time, or you just rarely using it.
