Twitter is trying to provide an experience resembling the For You Page, which TikTok provides. The social networking app is introducing two new tabs that will alter users’ default feeds after a turbulent previous year, to put it mildly.
Users can switch between Twitter’s algorithmic timeline and the reverse chronological timeline thus far. The “For You” and “Following” sections have been added to the feed. The For You tab will be seen when the app is first opened, as The Verge reports. This indicates that the new Twitter site will have suggested themes and hot topics, a design similar to TikTok.
This isn’t the first time a competing social networking app has copied TikTok’s functionality, including Twitter. It will be interesting to observe how people react to this particular update and how much it may influence how they use the app. Social media analyst Matt Navarra shared a screenshot of the update, writing that the app is “a shit version of TikTok.”
Elon Musk also tweeted about the change, alongside other updates, emphasizing that this is “part of a much larger UI overhaul.”
The tabs are first being released for iOS. On Android and the web, you may still access the last feed as it was.
There is a possibility that the numerous adjustments Twitter will see over the coming year won’t result in improvement. If required, there are always alternatives to the once-adored bird app.
