Twitter is testing a new way to switch to your reverse-chronological feed a little easier, the company announced Tuesday. Right now, when you tap the three-star icon at the top of your feed to switch between Home feed (which sorts tweets for you) or the most recent feed (which shows them in reverse chronological order), a small menu will appear asking for you about to switch to the feed you are not on. For some iOS users, however, Twitter instead tests new Start or Recent tabs at the top of your screen when you tap the three-star icon.

This is what the change looks like, according to Twitter. If you have attached lists, the tabs should look familiar:

This change feels like it will be an improvement as it will mean less pressure to switch between feeds and make it easier to know quickly which feed you are looking at. That said, it’s unclear if Twitter plans to roll out this test more widely, and if so, when it could happen.
