Twitter Updates and Tips for September 2018

Has Twitter been trying to answer our prayers with the latest updates? Today in a series of tweets, the company announced that it is making some changes.


Chronological Timeline:

One of these announcements is that it will bring back a form of the pure chronological timeline that users can opt into. The switch is located on the content/security section on your twitter account.

Tweets you are likely to care about most will show up first in your timeline.

As Twitter Product Lead Kayvon Beykpour elaborated, “We’re working on making it easier for people to control their Twitter timeline, including providing an easy switch to see the most recent tweets.”

Nostalgic users who want regular old Twitter back can expect to see the feature in testing “in the coming weeks.” We’re ready to pull the switch, just tell us when.



Live broadcasts:

We’re making it easier to find and watch live broadcasts. Now, when accounts you follow go live, the stream will appear right at the top of your timeline. Catch breaking news, your favorite personalities, and can’t-miss sports moments. Rolling out now on iOS and Android.


Audio Casts:

Sometimes you just want to talk, without being on camera. We’re launching audio-only broadcasting, so your followers can hear, but not see you. Rolling out now for iOS.



Love to use Bookmarks and want it on web? Into scrolling through Explore to see what’s happening? We are testing out a new Twitter for web, which a small number of people will see today. Love it? Missing something? Reply and tell us. Don’t have the new experience? Stay tuned.

Filtered Messages:

Are your Direct Messages open, to chat privately with anyone? If so, you’ll see two sections: Inbox, with messages from people you follow; and Requests, for messages from people you don’t follow. Requests are now filtered, so it’s easier to see those useful messages.


Account locking:

What are locked accounts? When we see sudden changes in behavior, we lock accounts. We reach out to the owners of the accounts and unless they validate the account and reset their passwords, we keep them locked with no ability to log in.
