Twitter seems to have found a way to make its application profitable, looking for new ways to make money (with super-followers, for example), but also going a little further in its advertising model, which is increasingly present in different spaces. in which they can be located. If you use Jack Dorsey’s social network, surely you have already gotten used to the fact that your timeline is a small minefield where a sponsored message appears every few meters. Now, if there is a space in which we still did not have evidence of the intrusion of these advertisements, it was the threads of responses to a tweet, which today remain virgins like the Amazon a few centuries ago.

Without a doubt, if you are one of those who prefer to see the things in the order in which they were published, you are going to win with this second timeline. A way of consulting Twitter that, for some time, was in force until the algorithms and the selection of c ontentions based on criteria that were not, precisely, chronological ones. >
