Prisma, how to reverse order

I was getting data from the database using Prisma.

In my specific case I was getting tweets from the Tweets table, and they were listed from oldest to newest.

I wanted the opposite, like Twitter works - the newest shows up first.

So I picked my data fetching procedure:

await prisma.tweet.findMany({})

and I added an orderBy attribute to order by id in descending order:

await prisma.tweet.findMany({
  orderBy: [
      id: 'desc'
