How to activate the new Twitter timeline?

Twitter rolled out a new version of its timeline last night and these few words shouldn't surprise you because it has been a hot topic since the start of the week. Rest assured, however, because the latter is not activated by default on our accounts and it will therefore be necessary to browse through the preferences of the service to activate it.

For a very long time, Twitter was content to display the messages posted by users in ante-chronological order. Now, he wants to go further by highlighting the most interesting content.

How To Activate The New Twitter Timeline

Twitter has started rolling out its new timeline, but it will have to be activated to take advantage of it.

The idea is quite simple at the base because the engineers of the firm have developed an algorithm capable of analyzing in real time the way you use their service.

Twitter wants to highlight the most interesting content

It will draw on your account interactions and current trends to determine which tweets are most likely to interest you and those tweets will automatically top the list.

Be reassured though because the platform will not show you messages from the previous month.

It will always focus on the most recent content.

If these few lines remind you vaguely of something, it is quite normal because this function is very similar to the messages classified in the box “during your absence”.

Be careful, however, not to get confused because it will not replace them and these are not two completely separate elements.

As indicated above, this function is not activated by default on our accounts and you will have to browse through the preferences of the service to take advantage of it.

All you need to do is take the following steps, depending on your platform.

On Twitter.com:

  1. Log on to Twitter.com .
  2. Go to your account settings.
  3. Go to the “Content” section.
  4. Go down to the part devoted to the “Thread”.
  5. Activate the option “show me the best tweets first”.
  6. Validate the operation.

On iOS:
