As we move towards welcoming a new year, the CEO of the micro-blogging site, Elon Musk has announced that Twitter will now have a few new changes such as allowing swiping to switch between recommended & followed tweets, trends, topics, and increased length of videos that can be uploaded on the platform. The announcement was made by Musk on Saturday, in which he said a new navigation feature will arrive next month.

It is worth noting that the Twitter CEO intends to improve users' surfing experiences by implementing new changes."Twitter navigation is coming in January that allows swiping to the side to switch between recommended and followed tweets, trends, topics, etc. To switch until then, tap the stars icon in the upper right corner of the home screen," Musk tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, Musk noted that swiping across lists will also be enabled. "As we improve Twitter AI, recommended tweets, lists, and topics will become awesome," and this feature will help in switching back and forth. Notably, the micro-blogging platform has already allowed users to swap between a chronological timeline that shows the latest tweets and the Home timeline which displays recommended tweets by clicking on the star button. 

"It's good to switch back and forth. As we improve Twitter AI, recommended tweets, lists, and topics will become awesome," said Musk.
