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 #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.”

BuzzFeed updated its report with Dorsey’s response.

The Verge even compiled a list of Dorsey’s tweets on the topic.

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 also considering other changes.

The San Francisco-based social media site reports quarterly earnings on Wednesday.
