Twitter continues to innovate to enhance the user experience. The platform will release new navigation tools in January 2023, Elon Musk said.
Ever since Elon Musk bought Twitter, the platform has entered a zone of constant change and updates. Although not all of them took root, some of them were really liked by users. While innovations on Twitter used to take too long to develop and implement, now they are happening fast enough to dramatically increase the satisfaction of using the platform in the shortest possible time and attract even more users.
Over the past two months, a lot of interesting features have been introduced or accepted for development. For example, last week, after some users experienced difficulties using Twitter, it became known that “significant” backend server architecture has been introduced and now the platform should be faster than before. This was a fundamental change that improved the Twitter experience for all users.
On Friday, Musk said that other improvements will be made soon, which will relate to navigation. He said that the platform's new navigation features that allow “swiping to side to switch between recommended & followed tweets, trends, topics, etc.” are designed to make the platform better and faster. This will become available in January 2023.
New Twitter navigation coming in Jan that allows swiping to side to switch between recommended & followed tweets, trends, topics, etc.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 30, 2022
Until then, tap stars icon on upper right of home screen to switch.
In addition, the platform improves Twitter AI, which will make recommended tweets, lists, and topics more user-friendly and “awesome.”
It’s good to switch back & forth. As we improve Twitter AI, recommended tweets, lists & topics will become awesome.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 30, 2022
Musk said that Twitter now has a bookmark function accessible through the share button on tweets. Some users use likes as bookmarks, but at the same time, they are public, so they are not always convenient. Unlike likes, bookmarks are private, which will be convenient for a wide range of users.

To read bookmarks, tap profile icon.
This obscure UI will be fixed in Jan.
Musk continues to interact directly with Twitter users in order to discuss various changes or listen to their suggestions for new features. His openness is unique for a leader in any industry. Unlike most other business owners and CEOs, Musk strives to do exactly what users want because they know best what it takes to improve their experience with products and/or services.
