NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said Saturday 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.”
