Twit­ter CEO says time­line will stay in real time

The Pak Banker - - BUSINESS -

NEW YORK: Twit­ter CEO Jack Dorsey said the so­cial me­dia web­site's stream of tweets will stay live and in real time, dis­put­ing a me­dia re­port that a change was in the works. News and en­ter­tain­ment site Buz­zFeed re­ported on Fri­day that Twit­ter was go­ing to in­tro­duce a time­line based on an al­go­rithm rather than a real-time stream. The re­port up­set some users, who cre­ated the hash­tag RIPTwit­ter to de­bate the change. But Dorsey took to Twit­ter on Satur­day to dis­pute the re­port. "Twit­ter is live," he tweeted. "Twit­ter is real-time." Buz­zFeed up­dated its re­port with Dorsey's re­sponse. Twit­ter is fac­ing slow­ing user growth and has been try­ing to make its ser­vice more ap­peal­ing with a fea­ture called Mo­ments, which com­piles pho­tos, videos and mes­sages about big news events. It's also con­sid­er­ing other changes.
