The Twitter team announced that it is working on a number of improvements to address one of the platform’s issues.
Twitter will solve the problem of disappearing tweets
Have you ever come across a tweet and it vanishes from the screen as you continue to read? Or that you’ve been concentrating on a tweet and the feed refreshes and you lose sight of the content? You’re not the only one, for some time now users have been complaining that they can’t finish reading tweets as they disappear.
A problem that seems to arise when the timeline is updated or many users are replying to the tweet. This seems to cause you to run out of tweets in the middle of reading. And while there is no fix for this problem yet, the Twitter team announced that they are working on updates that will be coming soon.
Let’s talk about Tweets disappearing from view in the middle of reading when the timeline seems to automatically refresh. We recognize how frustrating it is, therefore we’re attempting to change it. We’ll be releasing new versions of the way we display your Tweets over the next two months, so they don’t vanish.
It’s not clear what improvements Twitter will introduce to prevent users from losing track of the content when they update the timeline or status. It may alter how tweets are presented in order to avoid this problem.
For now, we can only wait a couple of months to see what solution Twitter plans to implement. If you don’t want to get frustrated as you go through your timeline to catch up, you’ll just have to be patient.
