Last week, Twitter rolled out an update that prevents Tweets from disappearing while users are reading them. The micro-blogging platform rolled out the fix after users complained about the problem. The company announced its plan to roll out the fix in September when it tweeted, “Over the next two months we’ll be posting updates to the way we display tweets so they don’t go away.”
Twitter finally rolled out a fix for this feature last week, but it was only available to users on the web. The company has now announced that the feature is now also available for the latest update iOS Devices. “We made a few updates to iOS to keep Tweets from disappearing while you read. Now, if you stop scrolling the timeline to view a tweet, it should stay! ”Shared the support handle from Twitter.
As of now, the company hasn’t announced when the feature will be available for Android devices, but it is expected to roll out soon.
Twitter also recently removed the algorithm for cropping images for web users. The platform removed the algorithm for Android and iOS platforms in May of this year. This allowed users to view the full images as they scroll through the Twitter feed. The same change was visible when going through a specific Twitter account.
The platform informed about the function via its official support handle. Previously, users had to tap the pictures to see the full picture. The company began testing the feature in March this year after receiving feedback from users that its cropping algorithm was skewed.
The company is also reportedly working to expand the downvote feature to more users. According to well-known tech blogger Jane Manchun Wong, the company is working on a downvote button for the web after testing it for iOS. The company started the pilot phase of the feature in July of this year. It was only available to limited users on the iOS platform.
