Twitter’s new For You tab, which rolled out to iPhones and iPads on Tuesday, is now showing on desktop net browsers.
The For You tab is the TikTok-inspired title for Twitter’s algorithmically curated “Home” tab, and on iOS, it’s now the default tab you see while you shut and reopen the app. You can nonetheless entry the reverse-chronological checklist of the most recent posts from the folks you comply with on the “Following” tab (beforehand “Latest”), although Twitter has eliminated the star icon to modify between the timelines.
For some, this variation is now much more annoying since main third-party Twitter apps simply stopped working, blocking folks’s escape from options or adjustments they don’t like. As of Friday afternoon, builders of these apps are still saying that they haven’t heard something from Twitter about what’s occurring and whether or not their apps have been damaged deliberately or by chance.
The net model doesn’t appear to push the algorithmic For You timeline as onerous because the cellular change. In my exams, it might keep on following even after I closed the tab or browser. One of my colleagues says that when he bought the change, it was routinely set to Following — although for me, logging into Twitter with a non-public browser window does seem to reset it to For You.
The app, in the meantime, routinely opens to the algorithmic timeline and can reset to it when you shut and reopen it.
