Twitter members will soon get to pick between a relevant timeline or one in chronological order
Twitter fans, heads up. We have something important to tell you. On Monday, Twitter Support announced through a series of tweets that users will soon be able to toggle between a timeline that shows them the tweets they find most relevant, and a timeline that shows them the latest tweets in chronological order. However, this toggle will not be available immediately.

Until the new toggle options appear, Twitter will allow users to toggle between the "Show the best Tweets first" setting and seeing tweets only from people subscribers know in reverse chronological order. Prior to changes made today by Twitter, the latter toggle setting also included tweets titled "In case you missed it," and recommended tweets from people that members didn't know.

Twitter says that its research reveals that its users would rather see the tweets relevant to them first. However, it also has received input from some Twitter members that occasionally they would like to see their Twitter feed in chronological order. Therefore, the social media app is giving the best of both worlds to its members by offering the new toggle options. It will take a few weeks for the new toggle to be disseminated, so hold on and once again you might feel like the master of your own fate on Twitter.

Is it weird that I never aignup for twitter and have no clue what it’s like to own a twitter account.

No, it's a good thing.

This is a good start for social media, hopefully Instagram will follow suit.

I hope instagram would follow the same route as Twitter does here.. I've always wanted chronological order back

That's how I feel. I don't want to see tweets/status/IG posts from 3-4hrs ago at the top of my timeline. Show me what's been posted most recently and then on. Geez..
