The wait lasted long enough: starting today, Android users can, too, switch back to a reverse chronological feed on Twitter.
When Twitter brought back the reverse chronological feed for iOS users last month – one of the most coveted feature by many users across the world – Android users were left high and dry. Well, the wait is finally over: Twitter announced the feature is now also available for Android.
Twitter has switched to an algorithm-based feed four years ago. Back then the move sparked a lot of negative feelings among Twitter users. So when the app started rolling out a new feature that allows users to switch back to the original reverse chronological feed, the world rejoiced. Well, half the world, until today.
The update brings some stability to the Twitter feed. As a platform that wants to be the center of “what’s happening now” Twitter had to bring back a chronological feed. Algorithms are great, but they are not great are bringing up timely content.

Like on iOS, Android users can now tap on the “Sparkle” to switch between seeing “top tweets” – the algorithm-based feed – and the latest tweets first.
