Twitter removed the sparkle-shaped icon from the app’s interface that allowed users to switch between “Latest” and”For You.” It was replaced with two tabs, “For you” and “Following.”

What Exactly Is The Tab “For You”?
This tab shows users tweets from people they follow out of order and suggest tweets from people who don’t. Meanwhile, “Following” shows tweets in chronological order.
Twitter has made the “For you” timeline the default feed users see when they open the iOS app. The company tried this change before rolling it back due to a pronounced backlash.
Another change is that users can swipe between them instead of tapping the icon. A less good part is that users on iOS will now always see the “For You” tab, even if they don’t want it.

CEO Elon Musk tweeted last month that the company would make the changes soon.
Main timeline should allow for an easy sideways swipe between top, latest, trending, and topics you follow.
The “For you” and “Following” tabs replace “Home” and “Latest” and will be pinned to the top of your timeline so you can easily switch between them. Swipe to switch timelines instead of tapping the ✨ icon.

Also, there are no options to swipe to trending or followed topics, but the old star button still exists on Android on the web.
At first, Twitter used a chronological feed with the newest tweets at the app’s top, but it was switched to a timeline that first selected top tweets. That caused dismay among users, so Twitter added the option to switch to the pure chronological timeline.
Twitter’s decision it makes more similar to the way TikTok works. TikTok monitors what users tend to view and pushes them to the same suggested content with an akin feed, which raises engagement.
It remains to be seen if Twitter will have the same success.
