Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Saturday, said that 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 #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.
