Twitter’s timeline to show most relevant, timely tweets

New Delhi : Micro blogging site Twitter is planning to replace the reverse chronological stream with surfacing tweets that are most relevant or timely, BuzzFeed News and the Verge reported.

The social networking giant has been planning about this change for a long time now and had experimented with the change last year as well.

And in reference to last year’s tests, the company’s spokesperson said: “We are continuing to explore ways to surface the best content for people using Twitter.”Although the California based company hasn’t yet confirmed the pending timeline changes.

Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone, and Noah Glass and launched in July 2006.

The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with more than 100 million users posting 340 million tweets a day in 2012. The service also handled 1.6 billion search queries per day. In 2013, Twitter was one of the ten most-visited websites and has been described as ‘the SMS of the Internet’. As of May 2015, Twitter has more than 500 million users, out of which more than 332 million are active. (ANI)
