You know that moment when you spot an interesting tweet and it ‘’disappears’’ when you’re reading it? It’s always s frustrating, right? Well, it looks like that will never be the case starting today.
Twitter has rolled out a new update to prevent your Twitter feed from auto-refreshing causing some tweets to “disappear”
The micro-blogging platform first announced that it was working on this update back in September.
‘’Let’s talk about Tweets disappearing from view mid-read when the timeline seems to auto-refresh. We know it’s a frustrating experience, so we’re working on changing it.’’ the company said.
Let’s talk about Tweets disappearing from view mid-read when the timeline seems to auto-refresh. We know it’s a frustrating experience, so we’re working on changing it.
Over the next two months, we’ll be rolling out updates to the way we show you Tweets so they don't disappear.

Twitter says it’s rolling out this update for web first.
‘’An update to the disappearing Tweet experience is rolling out for web! Now you can choose when you want new Tweets to load into your timeline –– click the Tweet counter bar at the top,’’ it said in a tweet.”
Twitter while replying to a user’s tweet, further explained that the new update is meant to help users to be able to stop and read a Tweet without it disappearing from view.
