Twitter’s timeline isn’t actually changing very much

motorola_moto_x_pure_edition_twitter_profile_TAWorried about Twitter making your timeline more like Facebook? Turns out, things aren’t going to be so bad. While we had originally heard that things would shift to an algorithmic timeline and away from a chronological timeline, Twitter is actually probably just going to be expanding on the “while you were away” feature, which most of us have probably already seen.

The earlier rumors would taken out of context, according to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and that drastic changes were never even planned within the company. Instead of completely adjusting the timeline around, Twitter is only going to be tossing in a handful of popular tweets in your timeline. You might see a tweet from 10 hours back while you’re only at 3 hours back in your timeline, for example. Hardly a Facebook-esque shift to a curated display.

Twitter’s claim to fame is its timely updates about everything you care about, and that’s likely going to be its core functionality for a very long time. You’ll still see Twitter experiment with other kinds of content (look at Moments or the aforementioned “while you were away” sections) but we probably won’t see them become the backbone of the social media site.
