    It's ironic that the most heated discussions of the platform's weaknesses are playing out on the platform itself. " data-adaptive-image-768-img="" data-adaptive-image-1024-img="" data-adaptive-image-max-img=""> Twitter has been dying since 2009, and commentators have pre-emptively declared it deceased pretty much every year since. To declare that it's on the downturn has become a bit of a cliché. But that doesn't mean that it isn't also, well, true. Grumbling among users and commentators has grown to a roar over the past few days, thanks in part to a Buzzfeed report (refuted by Jack Dorsey, Twitter's CEO) claiming the service will move away from a chronological timeline and towards an...

    More Twitter is a land of inside jokes. A persistent one over the last several months has been that users are witnessing the social network’s last days. There is now a palpable anxiety about Twitter’s future, made worse by recent turns for the ten-year-old San Francisco company. Its stock price has been steadily trending downwards for months, sinking to all-time lows this week. #RIPTwitter trended globally over the weekend as users blanched at the latest unwanted change (timelines sorted using an algorithm instead of in chronological order). Then, the company’s quarterly earnings report on Feb. 10 revealed that Twitter’s user growth has stalled. It is actually losing...

    A proposed change to the Twitter feed that its most hardcore users revile may be just what media companies revere — and key to the struggling company’s growth. Since its launch in 2006, the social network has been known for its real-time delivery of short messages in chronological order. But the company faced an outcry over the weekend after BuzzFeed News reported it may abandon that approach for a system that would prioritize buzzy items of interest or posts that a user missed while away, in a way that’s similar to rival Facebook. To Twitter diehards, it’s blasphemy. But for media and entertainment companies, the modifications could help detangle two of...

    May 20 2016, 2:35 AM ET Share this article: The launch of VIBE was the definitive introduction of the power of Hip-Hop and culture to move the crowd. Before the Internet, before email, before social media…there was VIBE. The magazine founded by the legendary musician/producer Quincy Jones, was created on the pulse of our music, as it was riding the power of television, radio, film and fashion becoming charged with the electricity of the streets. Thus, VIBE provided the all encompassing platform to showcase the evolving genre while it solidified a firm placement in the fabric of this nation. This new culture gave rise to stars, and none shone brighter than Sean “Puff Daddy”...

  • 03/05/17--17:37: Twitter’s New Order
  • What do you see when you open Twitter? Until a year ago, the answer was straightforward: With minor exceptions, you’d see every tweet from every person you followed, in chronological order, with the most recent at the top. In February 2016, word leaked to BuzzFeed that Twitter was planning a move that would change everything. The company was introducing what insiders called an “ algorithmic timeline .” It meant that tweets would no longer appear in the order they were posted. Instead, a complex, opaque software program would decide which tweets you’d see when you opened the app. It sounded nefarious. Worse: It sounded like Facebook , the older, more mainstream social network that Twitter’s...

    Twitter has announced a change that will elevate the "most important" tweets to the top of users' timelines, confirming reports about such a feature that caused a strong backlash among Twitter users over the weekend. Thankfully, it doesn't seem all that bad. The new feature, which will be opt-in when it launches on Thursday but which will become the default "in coming weeks", is an extension of the existing "while you were away" feature. Kicking in when the...

    Three days after a report indicated that Twitter might soon introduce an algorithm-driven timeline, fans of the microblogging site are continuing to tweet their complaints using the hashtag #RIPTwitter. The outpouring of commentary in the wake of Friday's report in BuzzFeed prompted CEO Jack Dorsey (pictured above) to respond with two tweets of his own on Saturday. In one, he noted that Twitter "never planned to reorder timelines" in the coming week. Twitter currently posts...

    Hours ahead of its latest financial results release, Twitter has introduced a controversial -- though optional -- change to how new tweets are displayed on a user's timeline. Rather than viewing tweets in the long-time default format of reverse chronological order, users can now choose to switch to an algorithm-driven format designed to show more important updates first. On Friday, just the fact that Twitter was considering such a move set off a steady stream of tweets under the hashtag #RIPTwitter...

    Twitter is tweaking the way that tweets appear in its users' timelines in its latest attempt to broaden the appeal of its messaging service. The change announced Wednesday moves Twitter closer to a formula that Facebook uses to determine the order of posts appearing in its users' news feeds. It's a risky move for Twitter because it threatens to infuriate many of its 320 million users who like things the way they are. But the company can't afford to stand pat with its user growth...

    The outlook for Twitter Inc (NASDAQ:TWTR) stock is rather gloomy as the #RIPTwitter hashtag went viral. The company’s co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey had to rescue the platform with a Tweet. But will he be able to save plunging TWTR stock? TWTR Stock: Algorithmic Timelines for Twitter? So, what’s Dorsey saying about Twitter reordering timelines?
