Last week, Twitter rolled out an update that prevents tweets from disappearing while users are reading them. The micro blogging platform rolled out the fix after users complained about the issue. The company announced the plan to roll out the fix in September when it tweeted “Over the next two months, we’ll be rolling out updates to the way we show you Tweets so they don’t disappear.”
Twitter finally rolled out a fix for this feature in the previous week but it was only available for users on the web. Now, the company has announced that with the latest update, the feature is now also available for iOS devices. “We’ve made some updates on iOS to prevent Tweets from disappearing mid-read. Now when you pause your timeline scrolling to look at a Tweet, it should stay put!” shared Twitter’s support handle.
As of now, the company has not revealed when the feature will be available for Android devices but it is expected that it will be rolled out soon.
Twitter also recently removed the image cropping algorithm for web users. The platform removed the algorithm for Android and iOS platforms in May this year. This allowed users to view the full images while scrolling through the Twitter feed. The same change was visible while going through any specific Twitter account.
The platform informed about the feature through its official support handle. Earlier, users had to tap on the images to view the full picture. The company started to test the feature in March this year after receiving feedback from users that its cropping algorithm is biased.
The company is also reportedly working to expand the downvote feature to more users. According to the known tech blogger, Jane Manchun Wong, the company is working on a downvote button for the web after testing it for iOS. The company began the pilot of the feature in July this year. It was only available to limited users on the iOS platform only.
