Twitter now defaults to a TikTok-style feed nobody asked for

What you need to know

  • Twitter has replaced its “Home” and “Latest” feeds on the home screen with a new TikTok-style interface.
  • The redesigned home screen now shows the “For you” and “Following” feeds, with the former being the default feed each time you open the app.
  • This new feed serves up tweets from accounts you follow in no particular order along with tweets it thinks you may like.
  • Twitter is rolling out the new feed to iOS users first.

Twitter arguably made the right decision when it scrapped a tabbed timeline view a few days after launching it early last year, and for good reason. The algorithmic feed made it difficult to find the most recent tweets from accounts you follow by default, but Twitter is going that route again after all, at least on iOS initially.

Elon Musk’s Twitter announced today a new tabbed interface for its home screen, where your feed is split into algorithmic and reverse chronological tabs, with the former being the default view. This means that each time you launch the app, you’ll be greeted with tweets both from friends and strangers.
