Following TikTok’s footsteps, the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, plans to roll out a TikTok-style Twitter’s For You Page. In a change rolling out to iOS users, the company has removed the star button located at the top right, which was used to switch between two feeds. Now, its place is taken by two tabs — ‘For You’ and ‘Following.’

Twitter’s TikTok-style For You Page Depicts the ‘Home’ Option

Although Twitter’s For You Page is similar to TikTok but it represents different content than TikTok; it displays an algorithmically-driven feed, similar to the old “Home” option, which shows you tweets from the people you follow out of order, combined with the tweets Twitter think you may like.

Twitter support explained the new interface in a tweet; “The “For you” and “Following” tabs replace “Home” and “Latest” and will be pinned to the top of your timeline so you can easily switch between them. Swipe to switch timelines instead of tapping the star icon.” The change depicts Elon Musk’s previous tweet, as he said; “Main timeline should allow for an easy sideways swipe between top, latest, trending and topics that you follow.”

User Opinion

Social media consultant Matt Navarra called the change ” a shit version of TikTok.” The U.K.-based speaker and mental health advocate Rach Idowu said she “really dislikes” the new feature, which made it harder to engage with the communities she follows. She tweeted, “It’s like each featured of the app is becoming so siloed that keeping up with communities and people you want to engage with requires many clicks and looking in many places.”
