Major Change Have Been Made On Twitter Homepage


On Wednesday a major change has been made in Twitter homepage by Twitter Inc, saying that 


" It will recast the way it displays tweets on its homepage by customizing them to individual users, instead of uniformly displaying tweets in reverse chronological order."

The change also provide advertisers so many new features by giving more prominence to tweets that advertisers pay for to promote products.

After the Twitter Inc reports fourth-quarter earnings to investors, who have been regularly pressurized by the investors to increase the ad revenue and as well as user growth by making the product easier to use then just after an hour these changes comes out.

In a Reports they said, 

"Twitter could be changing the timeline surfaced last week, prompting laments by users tweeting with the hashtag #RIPTwitter. They said using a customized, or algorithmic, timeline - similar to Facebook's News Feed - meant Twitter would lose one of its signature features."

In testing the new timeline, Twitter wrote in a blog post that 

"It saw increased user interaction with ads and tweets about live events. Advertisers have said their ads can get lost in the reverse-chronological timeline. Twitter said it analyzed how users have engaged with billions of tweets to determine what they are most interested in. When users open their timeline, they will see several tweets from the past several hours that Twitter thinks they are most likely to interact with. Underneath it they will see the traditional reverse-chronological timeline. "

Users can choose to opt out of the new algorithmic timeline.

Jack Dorsey, Twitter's chief executive, and co-founder tried to reassure users in a series of tweets last week that Twitter would remain the place for live news and commentary.

"Twitter is real-time. Twitter is about who & what you follow. And Twitter is here to stay! By becoming more Twitter-y," Dorsey wrote. "We're going to continue to refine it to make Twitter feel more, not less, live!"
