Following Outcry, Twitter's Dorsey Says Live Tweets Are Here To Stay


"Twitter is here to stay," Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Saturday via Twitter, following a report that timelines on the platform would soon change by putting tweets out of reverse chronological order.

The hashtag #RIPTwitter became the top trending U.S. item on Twitter on Saturday, after a report from BuzzFeed said the company is planning to change how it displays users’ tweets.

The report said the social media platform will reorder tweets to prioritize those it believes more users will want to see. Currently, Twitter arranges tweets in chronological order.

The response to the news on Twitter was negative, with the hashtag #RIPTwitter suggesting many users of the micro-blogging site believe the changes would mean the death of the company.

Users say that accounts with fewer followers could possibly be suppressed under the new system. Others complained that the changes would make Twitter too much like Facebook, which arranges content through the use of an algorithm.

In a series of Tweets, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey reassured users that Twitter's real-time heart wouldn't necessarily be going away.

"Twitter is live. Twitter is real-time," Dorsey said. "We love the live stream. It's us. And we're going to continue to refine it to make Twitter feel more, not less, live!"

However, he hinted that a change is coming on the social microblogging network:

"Twitter can help make connections in real-time based on dynamic interests and topics, rather than a static social/friend graph."
