Twitter is making it easier for users to see a full time-ordered list of messages from users they follow — the way the service worked at the start for everyone.

A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.

The big picture: Several years ago, Twitter — seeking to make its service easier for new users and those accustomed to Facebook's heavily filtered Newsfeed — moved away from a simple timeline, adding "In case you missed it" and suggested tweets from accounts a user didn't already follow.

How it works: As of today, according to the company, users who turn off the "Show the best Tweets first" setting will only see tweets from accounts they follow, in reverse chronological order (newest first). The new feature Twitter says it's working on will make it easier to toggle back and forth between the filtered and unfiltered mode.

Who will care most:

  • Twitter power users (including journalists!)
  • Twitter old-timers
  • Anyone who wants to use Twitter to monitor news events in real time

Young people want checks on Big Tech's power

Data: Generation Lab; Chart: Sara Wise/Axios

The next generation of college-educated Americans thinks social media companies have too much power and influence on politics and need more government regulation, according to a new survey by Generation Lab for Axios.

Why it matters: The findings follow an election dominated by rampant disinformation about voting fraud on social media; companies' fraught efforts to stifle purveyors of disinformation including former President Trump; and a deadly Jan. 6 insurrection over the election organized largely online.

Wall Street's own populist revolt

Data: FactSet; Chart: Axios Visuals

A popular rebellion, organized by the powerless against the powerful. It might have failed in Washington, but it certainly seems to be working on Wall Street.

Driving the news: The market value of GameStop closed at more than $10 billion on Tuesday, on record volume of more than $26 billion.

One year of the pandemic

One year ago today, a novel coronavirus was barely beginning to catch the public's eye. There were just over 2,000 confirmed cases worldwide, mostly in China, and five cases in the U.S.

The big picture: The sea of red says it all. Today, there have been over 100 million cases worldwide, led by the U.S. with 25 million.
