Twitter announced in January 2023 that the “For You” timeline would be the default timeline for all users. This timeline is algorithmically-chosen, and it is designed to show users tweets that they are most likely to be interested in. The “For You” timeline takes into account a variety of factors, including the accounts you follow, the topics you’re interested in, and the tweets you’ve interacted with in the past.
Some users have expressed concerns about the “For You” timeline, arguing that it gives Twitter too much control over what they see. Others have said that they prefer the “For You” timeline because it helps them discover new content that they might not have seen otherwise.
If you’re not happy with the “For You” timeline, you can switch back to the “Following” timeline. To do this, open the Twitter app and tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the screen. Then, select “Settings and privacy” and scroll down to “Timeline.” Under “Timeline view,” select “Following.”
You can also choose to see a combination of the “For You” and “Following” timelines by tapping on the “See latest Tweets instead” button. This will show you the latest tweets from the accounts you follow, as well as some suggested tweets from the “For You” timeline.
Ultimately, the best way to decide which timeline is right for you is to experiment and see what you prefer.
