Twitter recently changed the behavior of its website to pause your Twitter feed until you refresh, and it has now done the same with its iOS app …
It follows a promise the company made back in September to fix one of the most annoying things about the platform.
It’s happened to all of us: You see an interesting tweet, start reading it, and… whoosh! It’s gone as the feed refreshes and you have to scroll down to find it again. Or, even more frustratingly, you only glimpse a tweet as it scrolls away and then can’t find it again.
Twitter said in September that it was aware of this frustration, and was working on a fix. That fix came to the website last week, and Twitter says that it has now rolled out to the iOS app too.
