Ahhhhhh Twitter. Your one stop shop for news on the exact location where your favourite famous person just had a wee, frighteningly real-time updates on where they just bought a frappuccino, and generally the only tool a fangirl ever really needs in his or her arsenal.
Until now that is.
According to Buzzfeed News, a big Twitter timeline update - which the site says could be introduced as soon as next week - is coming your way, and it's about to change the whole social media platform as you know it.
WHY TWITTER, WHY.
You've probably seen internet people kicking up a right fuss about the announcement recently - but why exactly is everyone so annoyed about the new fangled update, and what does it mean for the way we all use and rely on Twitter?
Well here's the deal - the new version of the site may see tweets displayed OUT of reverse chronological order. That means, instead of seeing the newest tweets at the top of the page, an algorithm could push those that are most relevant or popular to the top instead.
Anyone want to join us in asking the all important question of 'WHY?'
Some people are arguing that it makes sense seeing as Facebook has long been delivering your timeline posts out of order, but is it just us that reckon it's one of THE most annoying features of Facebook? And slightly defeats the purpose of a timeline altogether, surely.
In the same way that engagements, babies and boring stuff about jobs ends up at the top of Facebook when we want to stalk party photos, are we just going to get the most retweeted Kardashians news at the top of every Twitter feed now, rather than actual updates?
STOP CHANGING THINGS THAT WE LIKE, PLEASE.
But hang on a sec, because okaaaaay - there might be pros, depending on your scrolly thumb preferences.
If Twitter is scientifically giving us the most 'relevant' content to our individual needs, it does mean less scrolling. But that's even more bad news if you're a love of the scrolly scrolly scroll style of social media when you should be doing something way more productive.
WE'RE SULKING. Twitter, can you at least do a Facebook and add a 'Most Recent' option so that we can choose for ourselves how we like to read our timeline?
Sigh times a million. What do you reckon to this new idea for the way that Twitter's gonna work? Let us know you're thoughts with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
