Twitter not updating tweets
Twitter went into an uproar Friday after a Buzz Feed report that the social network was on the brink introducing an algorithmic, more Facebook-style feed.
Some may be old staples, such as Buffer or Promoted Tweets, while others are tricks I learned this week.What's really important is how the new timeline works in practice.The algorithm that will re-order your timeline is based on the one that ranks tweets for the "while you were away" feature that Twitter introduced a year ago.Headers now appear in bold, to help you navigate more easily. Retweet and Like counters update in real time, letting you watch tweets go viral.The home icon is still a birdhouse, but it lost the perch—you'll see just one hole instead of two. And the reply button gave way to a speech bubble that Twitter hopes is clearer in its purpose.
