twitter is Updating Your iOS App To prevent tweets from disappearing when users are still reading them. The change comes after the social media giant recently updated its web platform to not automatically refresh timelines with new tweets. Twitter acknowledged that in the past, tweets would often disappear from view because their timeline would automatically refresh when users were reading them, creating a frustrating experience.

“We’ve made some updates to iOS to prevent Tweets from disappearing in the middle of a read. Now when you pause your timeline scrolling to view a Tweet, it should stay there,” underlined Twitter a tweet,

In September, the company noted that it would be rolling out updates to the way tweets are displayed so they don’t disappear mid-read. These updates are now rolling out on Twitter’s web and iOS platforms. Twitter notes that it’s working on tweaking the disappearing Tweet experience on android too, but it is unknown when the updates will roll out.


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. The social media giant first tested the change in March with a small subset of iOS and Android users.

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. The company has also recently introduced its in-app tipping feature for all Android users above 18 years of age.
