Twitter has changed the way the “For You” and “Following” timeline tabs on the homepage work. It announced on Wednesday that the web version of the social media platform now remembers the timeline a user was last on. Upon returning to the site, the user is greeted by the timeline tab they last opened. This feature will soon make its way to the iOS and Android versions of Twitter. Elon Musk’s microblogging platform defaulted to the “For You” tab when users returned to the site.
Twitter announced on Wednesday that Twitter for the web will return users to the “For You” or “Following” tabs, depending on which tab they last opened before leaving the program. Twitter CEO Elon Musk had recently shared the social media platform’s intentions to implement these changes soon. Twitter says this change will be coming soon to the iOS and Android versions of Twitter as well.
Have any of you (all of you) asked to default your timeline to where you last left it?
Starting today on the web, if you close Twitter from the “For You” or “Following” tabs, you’ll be returned to the timeline you were last open. iOS and Android are coming! https://t.co/uKz9DpNRux

Musk also revealed that Twitter was working on giving users the ability to adjust the positions of timeline tabs in the app. Currently, the “For You” tab is located at the top left of the home page, with the “Following” tab next to it on the right. He also announced that Twitter users can now bookmark tweets directly from the tweet detail page. The app will soon support displaying the number of users who have bookmarked a particular tweet.
Another new feature will soon be making its way to Twitter as well. It works to automatically translate and recommend tweets to users in other countries. Musk revealed that tweets are translated before being recommended to users.
Much has changed on Twitter since Musk’s acquisition in October last year. A recent developer terms update reportedly banned all third-party clients on the microblogging platform. This move effectively killed popular clients like Tweetbot, Twitterrific, and Fenix. Several developers have already announced that they are stopping development of their applications.
