New Delhi: After recent reports on changes in Twitter timeline, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey clarified that social media website’s stream of tweets will stay live and in real time, disputing a media report that a change was in the works.
News and entertainment site BuzzFeed reported on Friday that Twitter was going to introduce a timeline based on an algorithm rather than a real-time stream. The report upset some users, who created the hashtag RIP Twitter to debate the change.
But Dorsey took to twitter on Friday to dispute the report.
Twitter is live. Twitter is real-time. Twitter is about who & what you follow. And Twitter is here to stay! By becoming more Twitter-y.
