Twitter To Launch Facebook-Like Timeline in 23 Countries: Twitter is planning to make changes to its UX and looking to introduce timeline for its users, something similar to the one, which Facebook introduced back in 2012. The facebook-like timeline is going to be launched in 23 countries as an experiment. The list of 23 countries also includes India as a part of it.
The new feature is an attempt to improve the user’s experience to the micro-blogging site and attract more people to become a part of the micro-blogging portal.

The best part about the Twitter’s timeline is that it will reorder the tweets on an algorithm based on what people wants to see the most. It will be totally different from the present algorithm which displays the tweets in the reverse order and the user needs to refresh the wall every now and then.

The upcoming timeline will allow the twitter feed to put the most popular content right at the top, make it accessible to everyone, even when the user is not logged in.

Now you can check out a news story as it unfolds. It’s real time and straight from the source, just like the real Twitter experience for those who log in.”[/pullquote]
Apparently, one fact that has not been cleared is that whether micro-blogging site will enforce users to put the new feature in or it will be just an option initially. In the past months, Twitter has rolled out many changes and is going to implement more new changes to it to improve the user experience and make their time spend worth at the micro-blogging web.
They have even introduced a new refreshed home page and the service is currently active in US and Japan and soon will be launched in 23 other countries. The term Favorites was replaced with Likes in November and it became very popular since then as it is the one thing, which every Facebook user comes through every day.
The new feature of Timeline is going to be one of the biggest change in micro-blogging web and the new algorithm is being implemented under the leadership of CEO, Jack Dorsey.
