Here's what Jack Dorsey has to say about your Twitter timeline

Twitter boss and co-founder Jack Dorsey has responded to a news report about major changes to timelines on the social network which had left users up in arms.

Dorsey tweeted that there is no imminent plan to reorder timelines with a new algorithm, changing from its current chronological order. The reported change sent Twitter into a frenzy with #RIPTwitter trending for much of Saturday.

The response suggest that real time will stay, but an expanded "while you were away" tab could be in the works, bringing together top tweets from users' timelines.

The move highlights the struggle Twitter has in keeping loyal fans happy but also making changes designed to attract new users.

North Korea fires long-range rocket

North Korea has fired a long-range rocket it claims put a satellite into orbit, but the move was condemned by the US, South Korea and Japan as a missile test against international sanctions.

US security adviser Susan Rice called it "destabilising and provocative" action and a violation of United Nations resolutions.

"We condemn today's launch and North Korea's determination to prioritise its missile and nuclear weapons programs over the well-being of its people, whose struggles only intensify with North Korea’s diversion of scarce resources to such destabilising activities," said Rice.

The launch prompted South Korea to call for talks with the US on the deployment of a missile defence system and for greater sanctions on the country from the UN.

Japan called the launch "totally unacceptable". 

"This series of provocation in a short range of time gravely undermines the peace and stability of the region and the international community including Japan, and is totally unacceptable," a Japanese government official said.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said: "Today’s missile launch, which follows a recent nuclear test, is a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions. We will resolutely take measures, acting in cooperation with the international community. We also intend to take all possible measures to ensure the safety and the peace of mind of the Japanese people."

The rocket launch is a repeat of one which took place in 2012, missile technology expert John Schilling told Reuters. North Korea is prevented from carrying out any missile tests by the UN Security Council.
