Twitter is working on a new feature for users on iOS that would allow them to swipe between a home feed that shows the top tweets in the timeline and a chronological look at the most recent tweets.
Currently, the user needs to tap on the three star icon at the top of the feed to switch between the main feed or the latest feed, but with the upcoming feature one can quickly change the preference.
Most popular tweets first or newest tweets first? We make it easy to switch between the two timelines and see which one you scroll through. Now testing with some of you on iOS: Scroll between Home and Recent on the Home tab to choose which tweets you see first,” the company said in a tweet.
It is not clear if Twitter plans to roll out this feature to more users widely.
Meanwhile, Twitter has already started rolling out a new “soft block” feature that would allow any user on the web to remove a follower without banning them.
To block a follower, head over to your profile, click Followers, click the three-dot menu next to a follower, and then click the “Remove this follower” option. The follower you remove will not be notified of the change.
This is different from blocking someone, which prevents them from seeing your tweets and direct messages (and prevents you from doing the same to them). – Jans
