If you spend any time on Twitter, you've probably heard that a number of users are unhappy with the company's decision to present Tweets in order of "relevance," where relevance is determined by their secret algorithms which—they hope—will be more engaging for users.

Although the "feature" is current opt-in, meaning it's off by default, Twitter has plans to make it opt-out.

Here are crystal clear directions for ensuring the "feature" is toggled on or off depending on your wishes.

How will Twitter know what I consider to be the best tweets? If advertisers like this, I probably won't!

The ones with the highest amount of retweets and favorites. Use an Twitter client that doesn't support ads, such as Tweetbot.

I use Tweetbot 4 a good bit. At least they're giving the option to use it. But if your tweet doesn't get many likes and retweets, you'll wonder if anyone saw it.
