Twitter Starts Rolling Out Reverse Chronological Timeline for Android Smartphone Users

Micro-blogging platform Twitter has rolled out the reverse-chronological timeline for Android smartphone users that would enable them to switch to the timeline view of their choice. “Like on iOS, Android users can now switch between seeing top tweets and the latest tweets first by tapping the sparkle icon on the top right corner of the app,” The Verge reported on Tuesday.
