Twitter has rolled out the ‘multiple timelines’ feature for iOS way back in September last year (2019), but it was not available for Android version of the app. The Android version of Twitter has received this feature just now. This feature is quite similar to Reddit’s Custom Feed. Now, you can create multiple timelines on your Twitter home screen using Lists. If you are still not using Lists on Twitter then we would highly recommend that you take advantage of this feature. We have explained the Twitter Lists feature in details below. So, read the reset of the article to get a better idea about this feature. Since this feature is now available on both Android and iOS, let’s have a look on how to create multiple timelines on Twitter for Android and iOS.
Create Multiple Timelines on the Twitter Home Screen
This is one of the best features of Twitter, other than the “Lights Out” black theme and Bookmark is Lists. Using Twitter Lists, you can create custom timelines for your topics of interest. For example, you can create separate Lists for Technology, Politics, and Android where you can add tweeple based on their domain expertise. The best part about Twitter Lists feature is that they work exactly the same way as your default home screen timeline does.
With the latest Twitter update on Android, you can now pin those lists directly on your Twitter home screen along with the main Timeline. This small design change in the update has made Twitter Lists more accessible, easy to use, and improved the user experience significantly. Since the main twitter timeline is filled with all kinds of news and information, you can simply use alternate timeline for accessing different topics. For example, if you want to read about Technology at a particular time, you can just swipe left and move to the Tech timeline. Basically, multiple timelines on Twitter is a boon for users who follow a range of topics and people. Enough talks, let’s check this new feature and see how to create multiple timelines on the Twitter home screen.
In this tutorial, we have demonstrated the steps on an Android smartphone, but the steps remain same for iOS devices as well. Also, make sure to update the Twitter app to its latest version.
First of all, tap on the “Profile” icon on the top-left corner and select “Lists”. Now, tap on the “plus” icon at the bottom to create a Twitter List, if you have already not created any lists.
After you have successfully created the lists, tap on the ‘Pin’ icon to move the particular list to the home screen. You can further tap on ‘Edit‘ to change the order of the lists as well.
Finally, you will see multiple timelines on your Twitter home screen. You can simply swipe left or right to move from one list to another. This is an awesome new feature and feels very convenient to use.
Swipe Between Multiple Twitter Lists Easily
This tutorial was about how you can create Lists and set up multiple Timelines on your Twitter home screen. We have not used this feature extensively so far, but it has worked really well and we did not see any kind of delay in updating the feed with the latest tweets. However, we don’t have one feature that the main timeline has and that is the option to choose between Top Tweets and Tweets in chronological order. We hope Twitter slowly rolls out those features as well to the List section. Hope you liked this new feature of Twitter. Do let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
