Twitter Adds New Feed Sorting Option
Read Time:3 Minute, 10 Second

We are still not convinced that Twitter Communities has the ability to become a significant part of the application’s interface.

But that’s not to mean it won’t be worthwhile, or that certain Communities won’t become popular. But, given Twitter’s concept of a “global public square,” how many users are actively participating in the Community, or would want to?

Communities on Twitter Now Have New Methods To Sort Their Feeds

Regardless, Twitter appears to be committed to the idea, with automated categorizing inside Communities broadcasts being the most recent update.

Users may now arrange their Community feed by ‘For you’ (sounds interesting), which would highlight the top tweets across each community based upon your participation activity or ‘Current,’ which will display the most recent community posts at the top.

According to Twitter:

“Every time a person visits that Community, the configuration they chose would become the new default.” The setup is unique to each Community and may be altered at any time, allowing users to pick and personalize how they view every one of their Communities depending on their personal preferences.”

Revealing one of the most relevant tweets for you might make it simpler to interact in your chosen communities, particularly in more popular ones. Of course, this assumes that Twitter’s algorithms are capable of identifying the finest tweets for each user.

So far, Twitter’s algorithm matching hasn’t demonstrated much aptitude for personalization, with algorithm-defined feeds favoring the individuals you interact with most of the most popular tweets.

Anything which makes more sense, but there isn’t much-advanced learning going on — Twitter, for example, isn’t very good at giving you material that you might be ready to focus on your prior behavior.

Our Spaces page is a great illustration of this; for now, I’m guessing you’ll have problems discovering in-progress Spaces that are relevant to you, as the listing merely shows the much more famous Spaces broadcasts anywhere at a given time.

TikTok Demonstration:

As TikTok has demonstrated, algorithm customization is critical to boosting user engagement, with the TikTok system being able to swiftly react to your tastes and continue to feed you more of what you want. Twitter’s systems aren’t even close, with its ‘Accounts to Follow’ and ‘Topics’ recommendations frequently falling far short of being meaningful for most users.

It was one of the main reasons why Twitter is still not able to leverage its status as the go-to source for real-time conversation. Twitter has more trending discussions than any other site, but it hasn’t figured out how to show those talks to each specific user. Theoretically, it still could, and perhaps that’s part of Elon’s great plan. However, without that capability, most of these sorts of ‘top tweets’ displays aren’t able to significantly increase interaction.

However, perhaps this will be unique in Communities, in which you’re already engaged in the primary issue, and perhaps this will help you find more relevant, fascinating conversations.

Community, overall, does not appear to have taken off at the moment, based on anecdotal data, but Twitter has stated that it is pleased with the uptake, and it may yet become a thing if Twitter can discover additional methods to enhance participation.

With Twitter focusing its efforts on its core parts and moving away from experimentation, this may be even more challenging.

Perhaps Twitter Stand There:

Perhaps this will be one of the final Communities upgrades for a while, and perhaps the new emphasis on personalization will deliver meaningful benefits on this front.

It’s a confusing period at Twitter HQ, making it difficult to determine what to anticipate.

This top-right feature choice from each Community allows users to select amongst chronological sorting choices.
