twitter is Updating your web platform To change the way users see new tweets. The social media giant will no longer automatically refresh the Timeline on the web with new Tweets, and users can now decide when they want new Tweets to load. Twitter acknowledged that in the past, tweets often disappeared mid-read when a user’s timeline was automatically refreshed. Now, users can load new Tweets whenever they want by clicking on the Tweet counter bar at the top of their timeline.

In September, the company noted that it would release updates to the way tweets are displayed so that they don’t disappear when users are reading them. It’s worth pointing out that Twitter’s iOS and Android apps also don’t automatically refresh users’ timelines when they open the app. Instead, users can click the highlighted Home button on the navigation bar to load new tweets.

Twitter also recently announced that it will no longer automatically crop image previews on the web, after rolling out full-size image previews on mobile earlier this year. On Twitter for Web, images will now display in full without any cropping. Instead of gambling on how an image will appear in the timeline, the pictures will look just like they did when you shot them.


These changes come as Twitter is working to enhance its platform and make its services more accessible. The social media giant recently rolled out the ability for users to share direct links from their Spaces so that others can tune into a live audio session via the web without logging into the platform. After its initial rollout in Canada and Australia earlier this year, it also launched its premium subscription service, Twitter Blue, in the US and New Zealand on Monday.
