How to Read Tweets With Reverse Timeline

By Jessica Ring

Reverse Timeline is a Firefox Add-on for the popular microblogging website, Twitter. Reverse Timeline allows you to read all of an account's unread tweets in chronological order. As Twitter currently displays Tweets from newest to oldest, the add-on effectively "reverses" the normal order of tweets. The add-on allows you to more easily follow a series of events or breaking news stories. Formerly Read All Tweets, Reverse Timeline is compatible with the newest version of Twitter.
