‘We love live stream’: Twitter CEO on timeline rumour

New Delhi : A day after BuzzFeed reported that Micro blogging site Twitter’s timelines would soon change by showing most relevant and timely tweets, the company’s CEO Jack Dorsey stated that the site will remain live.

Dorsey also said in a series of tweets that that he has never planned to reorder timelines by next week.

” Twitter is live. Twitter is real-time. Twitter is about who and what you follow. And Twitter is here to stay! By becoming more Twitter-y. Look at ‘while you were away’ at the top of your TL. Tweets you missed from people you follow. Pull to refresh to go back to real-time,” Dorsey said.

“I want you all to know we’re always listening. We never planned to reorder timelines next week. I *love* real-time. We love the live stream. It’s us. And we’re going to continue to refine it to make Twitter feel more, not less, live!,” Dorsey said in another tweet.

The company’s spokesperson had earlier said they are continuing to explore ways to surface the best content for people using Twitter.
