Upon Twitter’s Next Upgrade, The “For You” Timeline Will No Longer Be The Default

Because it was announced this week that Twitter will be discontinuing support for third-party Twitter clients, this week has been a difficult one for some of the people who use Twitter as well as the developers who work on the platform. However, there is a possibility that this week may have a glimmer of hope because to improvements that have been made to the user interface (UI). A little more than a week ago, Twitter updated the design of its home page so that users may now choose between two distinct timeline feeds. Musk has also stated that tab customizations are coming in a next update as well. Musk, however, does not provide any information on the timing of the second upgrade; we can only hope that it will occur soon.

You don’t need to follow any of the accounts that are creating the material in order to see it since the “For you” option will display you tweets from all around the site. Twitter will use an algorithm to compile a timeline of stuff that it thinks you would like and then provide it to you in this format. Even if there is nothing inherently wrong with putting information like this in the spotlight, it becomes a problem when Twitter imposes it on its user base without their will. Because this is the view that is selected automatically by the system whenever you use the platform, there is currently no other option available for viewing this tab.

Even though you have the option to alter the timeline to show only posts from people you follow, the platform will always default back to the “For you” timeline whenever you start a new session on the Twitter website or with one of its applications. This is the case regardless of whether you choose to modify the timeline to show only posts from people you follow or not. The good news is that it seems that this problem will soon be a thing of the past. Elon Musk, who is responsible for Twitter, recently revealed that the site would, following the next update, remember the timeline you have chosen and maintain it for the duration of your experience on Twitter.
