Twitter users will soon be able to swipe between tweets, topics, and trends, according to CEO Elon Musk.
In a tweet on Saturday, Musk announced that the new feature would be rolled out in January. He explained that users will be able to swipe to the side to switch between recommended and followed tweets, as well as trends and topics.
Until the new navigation feature is available, Musk advised users to tap on the stars icon on the upper right corner of the home screen to switch between their chronological timeline and the Home timeline, which displays recommended tweets.
The announcement of the new feature has been met with mixed reactions from Twitter users. Some are excited about the added convenience and customization that the feature will provide, while others are concerned about the potential for an even more cluttered and overwhelming user experience.
One user tweeted, “Finally, some much-needed improvement to the Twitter experience!” Another wrote, “Oh no, now I’ll have even more to scroll through and see things I don’t care about.”
It remains to be seen how the new feature will ultimately impact the user experience on Twitter. The platform has faced criticism in the past for its cluttered and overwhelming interface, with many users calling for simpler and more streamlined navigation.
The addition of the swipe feature could potentially address some of these concerns by making it easier for users to find and access the content that they are most interested in. However, it could also result in an even more cluttered interface if users are presented with too many options and recommendations.
Musk did not provide any further details on the new feature, so it is unclear exactly how it will work and what options will be available to users. It is likely that Twitter will provide more information as the rollout approaches.
The announcement of the new swipe feature has generated excitement and anticipation among Twitter users, who are eager to see how it will improve their experience on the platform. It remains to be seen whether the feature will live up to the hype, but for now, users can look forward to a new way to navigate and discover content on Twitter in the coming months.
