I’ve been told by insiders during Twitter that “nothing is sacred” when it comes to creation Twitter “easier to use” and prepared to onboard a subsequent few hundred million users that Twitter needs to be a powerhouse in media. The latest tweaks and horsing around have to do with a sequence of tweets we see in your timeline.

The hallmark of Twitter has been a retreat sequential tide that we see each day with one chatter issuing in after another in order. That’s not what some users are seeing, though:

Some are job it a “Facebooking of Twitter.” This of march references a fact that there is no apparent rhyme or reason as to because certain equipment uncover adult in your news feed on a amicable network.

We continue to uncover a doubt of a fundamentals in sequence to make a product easier and some-more permitted to some-more people.

While I’m not accurately certain what this exam will uncover Twitter, they’re many positively profitable courtesy to a information and not a people angry about a test…as many companies in this conditions do.

Recently, a association launched polls, stretched polls to 4 options, switched out favs for likes and stars with hearts, substituted a Moments and Notifications add-on on a web and Android and spotless adult a print knowledge on a web. Easier to use? Not really. Table stakes if we ask me.

So in a suggestion of transparency, I’ve gotta ask:
