Did you take a look at Venn diagram? They could be simplified into icons, where AND could be two circles with the intersection filled with your theme color, and OR having the whole area. As long as they stay next to each other. I think they should be clear enough. Or, just put AND OR in the icon.

A timeline by nature is more of a visual representation and a filtering tool rather than sorting, because it is much more difficult to manipulate the individual elements since it is probably on some type of slider or graph like control. A: I think a timeline will add some value as a filtering option if used correctly B: It should not be used for sorting ...
