Twitter for web will now stay on the last timeline tab you visited, iOS and Android update will follow soon
Twitter has changed the way the “For You” and “Following” timeline tabs on its homepage work. He announced on Wednesday that the web version of the social media platform will now remember which timeline a user was last on. Upon returning to the site, the user will be greeted by the timeline tab they last opened. This feature will soon make its way to the iOS and Android versions of Twitter. The Elon Musk-owned microblogging platform used the “For You” tab by default when users returned to the site.
Twitter announced on Wednesday that Twitter for the Web will direct users to the “For You” or “Following” tabs, depending on which tab they last opened before leaving. Twitter CEO Elon Musk had recently shared the social media platform’s intentions to introduce these changes soon. Twitter says this change will soon be reflected in the iOS and Android versions of Twitter as well.
Have any of you (all of you) requested that your calendar default to where you last left it?
Starting today on the web, if you close Twitter to the “For You” or “Next” tabs, you’ll return to the timeline you last opened. iOS and Android coming soon! https://t.co/uKz9DpNRux

Musk also revealed that Twitter is working to give users the ability to customize timeline tab positions in the app. Currently, the “For You” tab is at the top left of the homepage, with the “Next” tab next to it on the right. He also announced that Twitter users can now add tweets directly from the tweet details page. The app will soon include support for displaying the number of users who have tagged a particular tweet.
Another new feature will be making its way to Twitter soon. It works on automatic translation and recommendation of tweets to users from other countries. Musk revealed that the tweets will be translated before being recommended to users.
Twitter has seen many changes since Musk took over in October last year. A recent update to its Developer Terms reportedly banned all third-party clients on the microblogging platform. This move effectively killed popular clients like Tweetbot, Twitterrific, and Fenix. Several developers have already announced that they are stopping the development of their applications.
