If you use Twitter you’ve probably noticed that they’ve started displaying “Best Tweets” at the top of your Timeline when you log in.
These “Best Tweets” are selected by an algorithm similar to the one Facebook uses to select the “Top Stories” you see on there.
Personally, I don’t much care for “Best Tweets” or “Top Stories”.
I’d much rather have everything show up in my Timeline in reverse chronological order and decide for myself which tweets and posts are the best.
If you feel that way too, a simple settings change will prevent those so-called “Best Tweets” from taking over your Timeline. Just follow these steps:
1 – Log into your Twitter account.
2 – Click on the thumbnail of your profile image in the top right-hand corner of the window.
3 – Click Settings and privacy.
4 – Scroll down to the “Content” section and uncheck the box beside Show me the best Tweets first.
5 – Click the Save changes button (enter your Twitter password if prompted to do so).
That’s all there is to it. Twitter’s selection of “Best Tweets” should no longer show up in your Timeline.
Bonus tip #1: This post explains how to prevent videos from playing automatically when you view your Twitter timeline.
