One of Elon Musk’s main goals after buying Twitter for $44 billion is to make the social network’s algorithms more transparent. These automated systems are responsible for recommending content to users and for determining what they see on the home page. There is no doubt that this is a change in chronological order of tweets, preventing content from being displayed where it should be based on the time and date it was published. Fortunately, there is a way to change this behavior. Do you want to know how to do this?
How to restore chronological feed on Twitter
The steps to restore the chronological order on Twitter and switch to the latest tweets, are very simple. The social network even added a shortcut on the home screen to make this parameter more accessible.
