Twitter will no longer force users to use the ‘For You’ timeline

San Francisco: Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced Saturday that the next update to the microblogging platform will make it less mandatory for users to use the “For You” algorithmic timeline.

Musk tweeted: “The next Twitter update will remember if you were in For You (ie recommended), Following or the list you made and will stop switching you to recommended tweets.”

Several users expressed their thoughts on his post.
While one user said “thank god you always push me back to you which is no use for me”, another commented “thank you because the last thing I want to see is tweets from an algorithm as default”. .

On Friday, the platform announced that it rolled out updates to the “For You” and “Following” tabs on Android, which were already rolled out to the web interface and iOS last week.

As TechCrunch reported, Musk promised a feature on Jan. 8 that will allow users to easily flag tweets, and now the platform is rolling it out to iOS.

The new design shows the bookmark option in the expanded view of tweets, making it easier for users to bookmark a post.

It is currently only visible in the iOS app, but is expected to be rolled out to Android and the web soon.
