Twitter has changed the way the “About You” and “Following” sections on the home page work. It announced on Wednesday that the web version of the social media platform will now remember the timeline a user was last on. Upon returning to the site, the user will be greeted by the timeline tab they last opened. This feature will soon make its way to the iOS and Android versions of Twitter. The Elon Musk-owned microblogging platform has defaulted to the “About You” tab when users return to the site.
Twitter announced Wednesday that Twitter for the web will return users to either the About You or Following tabs, depending on the tab they last opened before logging out. Twitter CEO Elon Musk recently shared the social media platform’s intentions to roll out these changes soon. Twitter says that this change will soon be reflected in the iOS and Android versions of Twitter.
Have any of you (all of you) wanted your timeline to default to where you last left it?
Starting today on the web, if you close Twitter in the About or Following tabs, you’ll return to the timeline you last opened. Coming soon to iOS and Android! https://t.co/uKz9DpNRux

Musk also revealed that Twitter is working on giving users the ability to customize the positions of timeline tabs in the app. Currently, the “About You” tab is located on the top left of the home page, with the “Follow” tab next to it on the right. It also announced that Twitter users can now tag tweets directly from the tweet details page. The app will soon include support for displaying the number of users who have tagged a particular tweet.
Another new feature will soon make its way to Twitter as well. It works on automatically translating and recommending tweets to users in other countries. Musk revealed that tweets will be translated before being recommended to users.
Twitter has undergone many changes since Musk’s acquisition last October. A recent developer terms update has reportedly banned all third-party clients on the microblogging platform. The move effectively killed popular clients like Tweetbot, Twitterrific, and Fenix. Several developers have already announced that they are stopping development of their apps.
