Twitter will return chronological tape

“Smart” tape, which first displays the most appropriate and interesting messages for the user, was not appreciated by everyone. It turned out that some still prefer to view the messages in the usual way – as they are published.

To switch “smart” tape, you will need to go to the settings and uncheck the “Show the best tweets first” item.
