Twitter is bringing its recently-launched “sparkle button” to its Lite app, the Twitter app for Windows, and mobile.twitter.com
After testing the ability for users to switch between “top Tweets” and a reverse-chronological timeline of “latest Tweets” last year, Twitter brought the feature to iOS first in December, and then to Android the next month. The “sprinkle button” found within the mobile apps allows users to toggle which view of Tweets they want to be able to see at any time.
Now, the button will also be available to users of its slimmed-down Lite app, the Twitter app for Windows, and Twitter’s mobile site at mobile.twitter.com.
Following this expansion, the feature has now been launched across all of Twitter’s apps and web versions, and as a consequence, it is also removing the settings option released in September that allowed users to fully opt out of “top tweets.”
Want more ✨? We do too. Starting today, you can now switch between latest and top Tweets on Twitter Lite, Twitter for Windows, and https://t.co/AIUgyCj4rs.

As we explained in a previous report, the feature is personalized, so as one uses it, the better Twitter will learn their preferences and will automatically select their favourite mode by default, despite reverting to the algorithmic timeline sometimes.
