    Twitter has changed the way the Explore tab works in its official iOS app, with entries now organized based on topic and divided up into separate navigable sections.

    Twitter says the update should make exploring the platform easier than ever, with users able to find trending tweets on specific topics by tapping the designated tabs for news, sports, fun, and entertainment.

    The searchable Explore section, introduced early last year, gives users one-stop access to trends, search, Moments, and live video, with ads also showing up there in the last few months.

    Users in the United States can start accessing the new Explore tabs today, with availability likely to roll out gradually to other regions and territories, all being well.

    Earlier this month, Twitter added a new compose button to its official mobile app for iOS, with the aim of enabling one-handed scrolling and tweet composing. Twitter is also testing an option to quickly access a classic reverse chronological timeline, as promised back in September.

    I feel like they're just purposely ignoring what the audience are screaming out for at this point lol.

    Also... adds a compose button on the bottom right hand corner for ease of reachability... but leaves the final "tweet" button in the top right hand corner anyway.

    Is it possible for any company to hate its users as much as Twitter does?

    Seriously, give me my timeline in order and give me an “edit” button.

    Tweetbot was perfect until Twitter made them remove all the good features.

    That's the thing - I didn't even mind using the official Twitter clients, but then they went and screwed themselves over and deleted their own Mac app without offering an alternative. Then they left just enough time for me to have to BUY Tweetbot, and THEN they completely gutted third parties of everything. The absolute worst. That let me know they really don't give a sh*t about their users.

    What is the audience screaming out for?

    I thought Twitter was dead anyway.

    Edit functionality. Multi-media tweets (mix of pics and videos). Multiple gifs. A proper Mac app. A proper chronological timeline. When I click “see less of this”, actually seeing less of this. Tweet scheduler. Better moderation (there’s no reason I should have been banned for talking about killing video game characters but they found “nothing wrong” with the guy that called me a homophobic slur). I could go on lmao.

    They are just spending what they earned on what people don’t want.
