Since 2016, the social network modified its algorithm with the idea of ​​showing the best tweets that were published when the user was not connected to the platform, since being in chronological order there was a great dependency on that aspect.

Over time, the recommendations evolved and strengthened, so that people found out about other accounts and expanded their content, which also opened the way for external and internal advertising.

Currently a user can organize their feed in different ways. The default is viewing content provided by the algorithm, which will show comments from accounts that are followed, those that are constantly viewed, and those that are not followed but are related to the most viewed or searched topics.

There is another option that allows you to see the content according to the publication time of those accounts that are followed. Additionally, there is a configuration panel that allows you to make changes such as the deactivation of personalized ads, the places visited, the identity created in the algorithm, among others.
