Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says timeline will stay in real time
NEW YORK - Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says the social media website's stream of tweets will stay live and in real time.
News and entertainment site BuzzFeed reported 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. He tweeted: "Twitter is live. Twitter is real-time."
BuzzFeed has 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 considering other changes. The San Francisco-based social media site reports quarterly earnings on Wednesday.
