Sneak peek: Here's another sneak peek at Twitter's Super Follow feature

Twitter is working on fix for disappearance of tweets with automatic page refresh

Twitter announced another feature he's working on. Have you noticed that sometimes you read a tweet and the timeline seems to refresh automatically? Well, eventually there will be a solution.

According to the Twitter support page, over the next two months, the company will roll out updates on how tweets are presented so that they don't disappear.

The company explains:

The background: a Tweet would move up in the timeline as responses were added to the current convo. Since some conversations can move quickly, this made it possible to not see the same Tweet repeated in the TL.

Our changes will keep your TL up to date and prevent Tweets from disappearing while you are reading.

It's a strange decision on the part of the company, but it's actually a problem for many users.

Over the past few months, Twitter has tested a lot of features while implementing them. More recently, the company started rolling out a new Timeline look, which looks a lot like Facebook's news feed.

Twitter's new timeline design for iOS takes images, videos, and GIFs and stretches them across the entire width. This change essentially gives the app for iOS an edge-to-edge design that removes the margins on the sides. The company says:

Testing in iOS: Edge-to-edge tweets that span the width of the timeline so your photos, GIFs, and videos have more room to shine.

Twitter doesn't say when it will implement all of these features, but we'll let you know once the company does.
