7 months running and there is no latest update of the trends feature that Twitter promised. We can no longer select the trends “worldwide” option on the explore location tab. The secret to bring back twitter worldwide trends option is to set it up via a tablet or smartphone that still has the old version of Twitter installed before the update after April 2020.

The first guess is this caused by older php version that I still use and it turns out to be true. To update to the latest php version, we must do it through our hosting server. So please login first to your cpanel. By the way, I use hosting from Namecheap.
