Dhaka: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said his two-day “historic” visit to Bangladesh will “strengthen ties” between the two countries.

In a tweet, Modi thanked Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the warm welcome.

“Thank you PM Sheikh Hasina for the warm welcome. I look forward to a very good visit that will strengthen ties between India and Bangladesh,” Modi tweeted.

Modi, who is on two-day visit to Bangladesh, arrived at Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in a special Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft, Rajdoot. He was received, in a break from protocol, by his Bangladeshi counterpart. He was accorded a ceremonial welcome, after which he inspected a guard of honour. Posting a picture when he was received by Hasina at the airport, Modi tweeted: “Protocol broken to welcome a friend… PM Hasina welcomes PM to Dhaka and a historic visit begins.”

In another tweet Modi said: “Hello Bangladesh. I bring with me the affection and goodwill of the people of India.”

While leaving for the neighbouring country, he said: “Leaving for Bangladesh. This visit is going to strengthen the bond between our Nations, benefiting people of our countries and our region.”

Modi also posted some of the tweets in Bengali.

Twitter Announces to Revert its Timeline Into A Pure Chronological Feed

Giving its over 336 million users more control, Twitter has announced that it will completely revert their timeline into a pure reverse chronological feed.

The micro-blogging platform in 2016 announced that it will only show “most important tweets” and stop the most recent tweets first which irked many users.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Twitter announced that in the coming weeks, it will start testing a “way to switch between a timeline of tweets that are most relevant for you and a timeline of the latest tweets”.

“We’ve learned that when showing the best Tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful. However, we’ve heard feedback from people who, at times, prefer to see the most recent tweets,” said Twitter.

“Our goal with the timeline is to balance showing you the most recent tweets with the best tweets you’re likely to care about, but we don’t always get this balance right,” it added.

This is how it will work.

Flip on the feature in your settings from the iOS or Android Twitter app.

When you open Twitter after being away for a while, the tweets you’re most likely to care about will appear at the top of your timeline — still recent and in reverse chronological order.

The rest of the tweets will be displayed right underneath, also in reverse chronological order, as always.

“At any point, just pull-to-refresh to see all new tweets at the top in the live, up-to-the-second experience you already know and love,” said Twitter.

“We’re working on making it easier for people to control their Twitter timeline, including providing an easy switch to see the most recent tweets,” said Twitter Product Lead Kayvon Beykpour.

“When off, you’ll only see tweets from people you follow in reverse chronological order. Previously when turned off, you’d also see ‘In case you missed it’ and recommended tweets from people you don’t follow,” it noted. (IANS)
