Twitter is bringing back the reverse chronological timeline today

The reverse chronological timeline is making a comeback.

Twitter is rolling out an update to all users today that makes it easier to revert back to the old timeline,  where tweets are shown in reverse chronological order rather than ranked by an algorithm.

Starting today, users will see a new sparkle icon in the upper-right side of the app. By tapping the icon, users can quickly switch between reverse chronological and algorithmic timelines.

The new feature will go live today on the iOS app. Twitter’s Android app as well as its website will see the feature pop up in the coming weeks.

2018 was the year self-driving cars hit a roadblock

It's been a long day. As you ride home from the office, you start to nod off. You close your eyes as the self-driving car merges onto the highway. When you’re zonked out 15 minutes later, the car changes your route because of traffic, and eventually you wake up at your destination. 

That’s the dream of autonomous cars — and some very smart people, including Google’s Sergey Brin, thought they’d already be driving people around public streets by now. That hasn’t happened. In fact, in 2018, progress stalled, sometimes with deadly consequences.

The U.S. surrendered its climate leadership on the world stage

When the dust cleared and the gavel dropped, the United States’ place at the 2018 global climate negotiations — a two-week long affair in Poland attended by nearly 200 nations — had been sealed.

The superpower’s behavior will almost certainly be remembered as equal parts bizarre and unhelpful, not least for its resistance — on the global stage — to climate science that has been intensively studied for decades, confirmed and re-confirmed by distinguished institutions like NASA.

After wrapping up talks at the United Nations Climate Change Conference late Saturday night, Earth’s nations did eventually find an agreeable way to keep the historic 2015 Paris climate agreement alive, which is humanity’s emerging plan to dramatically reduce today’s extreme and unprecedented rise in carbon emissionsRead more...

Snazzy new Jump e-bikes hint at Uber's e-scooter future

A swappable battery and no more clunky U-lock or keypad? These are just some of the changes coming in January on the red Jump electric-assist bicycles rentable through the Uber app.

The next generation of the shared bikes was announced Tuesday, almost a year after Uber acquired the bicycle company and integrated the bike service onto its main platform. In cities where Jump already has bikes, like San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Cruz, and Washington, D.C., the bikes will roll out starting Jan. 7. Eventually, new cities will see the next generation of the red bicycles arrive this year.

8. Tess doesn't want to talk to her parents on This Is Us

Image: nbc

Listen, the Pearsons are clearly a loving family unit but it is emotionally and vocally impossible for them to solve as many problems as they do with a rehearsed-sounding, heartfelt speech. Every single family member constantly talks about their feelings and problems, and their primary method of comforting people is long, Jack Pearson-y speeches peppered with adorable personal anecdotes. Bravo to Tess Pearson, who came out to her parents in the midseason finale, and qualified that she did not want to talk to them about her sexuality. Like at all. Finally, a Pearson who understands the value of taking her own time to think about her feelings. Read more...
