Twitter faced criticism from several users for switching from its chronological timeline to a new system that instead showed suggested tweets. Twitter began rolling out previous twin-layout updates a few weeks ago.
Twitter confirmed the move in a tweet: “We’ve heard you – some of you always want to see the latest tweets first.” While we were exploring other options, we changed the timeline again and removed the currently tabbed experience. ”

The company has also embedded its previous tweet since March 11, which mentions the system before viewing tweets.
Previously, twin-tab layout users were able to see the top two tabs of the app (including suggested tweets and latest tweets) to interact between home.
This means that a user can still view tweets in chronological order but can’t access them by default because the Home tab will always appear first. A report from 9to5Mac also confirmed that a Twitter spokesperson mentioned that the company may change it again in the future.
Instagram, meanwhile, is testing new feed options that reverse the chronological order without showing post suggestions.
