Android users, glad: Your Twitter app now has an easy solution for the annoying "best tweet's first" timeline layout.
This change is in response to users' frustrations over timelines filled with tweets that are hours or days old rather than recent or timely. In December, Twitter added the possibility that iOS users quickly switch back and forth between their top tweets and their reverse chronological timeline at the top of the app.
This same feature is now available for Android app users. To see the latest tweets first, tap "spark" (as Twitter calls it) icon in the upper right corner of your primary feed. Hit "See latest tweets instead" on pop-up – this will put your timeline in reverse chronological order.
To return to the top tweets view, change the icon again and press "Return to Home". Keep in mind that Twitter will automatically return to the Home view after a period of inactivity – but the more you choose the reverse chronological view, the longer the twitter will keep you there.
If you use Twitter via browser, you can make the same change under Settings and Privacy. Scroll down to Content and uncheck "Show the best tweets first".
If you have already done so, you may notice a recent change in what appears in your reverse chronological feed. Twitter previously showed you "If you missed it" and recommended tweets now you will only see tweets from accounts you follow. Of course @TwitterSupport says they will eventually do away with "Show Best Tweets First" completely.
