Twitter is one of the most used apps on mobile devices, be it iPhone or Android. The social network introduces numerous functions and options to satisfy its users, however not always all these changes are to everyone’s liking. For example, in the latest version of Twitter, the tweet wall is updated automatically when a certain number of new Tweets accumulate.

Twitter applications have started to do something new, something that is truly annoying for many users. Every time there are a significant number of new tweets, your Tweet feed or wall is automatically updated and scrolled up. It doesn’t care if you are reading something. It just scrolls up and you lose the position on the wall you were in.
However, there is nothing to be alarmed about since fortunately the Twitter app for both iPhone and Android allows you to avoid the automatic update of the Tweets feed through a small configuration.
Without further delay, here are the steps to follow to configure your Twitter app so that the wall of Tweets does not automatically update when new published Tweets accumulate:
How to prevent your Twitter wall from updating automatically.
– Open the Twitter app and click on your profile picture located in the upper left corner of the interface.
– When the menu is displayed you will have to select the option: Configuration and security
– On the next screen you must go to the General section in order to click on: Accessibility
– Finally on the last screen you will have to scroll down until you are in the Movement section. Within this section you will have to deactivate the switch next to the option: Reduce movement
From now on, when your Twitter wall has new tweets to show, regardless of how many there are, your feed will not be updated. You will still see the small notification in the application that informs you that some of the most popular accounts you follow have tweeted something new, but at least the wall will not scroll up and you will not lose what you are reading.
It’s unclear if this is a new feature, or if Twitter simply decided to enable it by default after the latest update. In-app notification of new Tweets has been a part of Twitter for a long time. When the user tapped on this notification, it was when the feed scrolled to the top. In other words, the movement of the wall upwards was carried out by the user intentionally.
