You no longer need an iOS device to easily see your Twitter feed the right way. Twitter is rolling out its chronological timeline button on Android, giving you a quick way to switch between the latest tweets and the social network's algorithm-sorted top tweets. This isn't a once-and-you're-done switch, but it will make sure you can follow along with an awards show or sports extravaganza rather than wading through hours-old posts.

The simplified toggle isn't officially available on the web yet. All the same, it's a big deal. Most of Twitter's mobile users now have an easy way to control how they see their feeds, without diving deep into confusing settings menus. Unlike some other major social networks, you're not strictly beholden to a company's decisions about when and how you see your friends' content.
