BIG Change To Twitter Is Making Internet Freak Out

Twitter is making a big change, and the internet is not happy. According to Buzzfeed, the never-ending refresh social media platform of 140 characters is going to change its feed's algorithm to make the popular kids beat the mere mortals, again.

At the moment, the feed is reverse chronological order, so the newest Tweets of those you follow are on top. With the change, it will be 'most relevant' on top... Meaning, those with a 'k' next to their 'followers' number will likely trump anyone else on the internet. 

People aren't happy. 

A twitter Employee weighed in on the aftermath of the news...

It has yet to be announced if the new algorithm will be opt-in or automatic to all accounts.
