A month after Twitter launched its new timeline, which sorts tweets in your feed according to relevancy instead of chronology, the company has quietly turned it on by default. It also appears to be live for all users. 

Originally launched in February, the new timeline was opt-in, and it was only available to some users. 

Now users are reporting getting a notification that the setting is now opt-out.

The Next Web also noticed that Twitter updated its FAQ last week to include the fact that the new timeline is on by default. It’s no surprise, given that Twitter announced the change would happen “in the coming weeks,” but it’s a big difference, since users now must actively disable the feature to go back to “old” Twitter.

UPDATE: March 17, 2016, 3:43 p.m. CET Mashable has received the following statement from a Twitter spokesperson about the change: “As we said in our announcement, we’re rolling out our timeline improvements to everyone over time. People can still choose to opt out of it in their settings.”

The initial announcement caused a huge user backlash. At one point, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey even denied the change would happen. 

For now, the Twittersphere seems to be far less angry, but we’ve still seen far more negative than positive reactions to the change.  

A Tuesday report it claimed that Instagram might be following in Twitter’s footsteps and switching to an algorithmic feed instead of a chronological one. In our poll, the huge majority of 3,524 users who voted said the change would be bad for Instagram.
