If you’re like me, you enjoy using Twitter. It’s fast, interactive and you can shut it off, unlike email, when it becomes to be too much. Most people I know who use Twitter have a semi-addiction, so shutting it off might be harder for some. Anywho, I thought I’d put together my list of improvements and see what you come up with as well. Can’t hurt, right?
- Larger bio section – limited section now allows little to be found in common with each other
- Protect my updates abolished – are you kidding me? This is Twitter, not Quiver. If you need your updates protected, call someone on your phone; otherwise join the community!
- Enlarged profile area – additional areas could be added to list your industry, marital status, hobbies, etc. – again, more ways to seek commonalities
- Meeting rooms – not a new concept, but you search and find areas of interest and are able to chat with a segment of your group and others on things like football or croquet (hey, you play, so don’t deny it!)
- Criteria to kick out those who incessantly tell you every painstaking detail of their day – watching TV with my cat, painting my nails, sorting my baseball cards – give me a break.
- Tags for posts that merit special attention or good links so that others can seek and find them
- Improved user interface – the web-based window is large, chunky and not practical
- For those using the web based product – could you auto-refresh the window – please?
- Alphabetical listing of those you follow and those who follow you
- Finally, another user interface suggestion – an edit/format bar that allows BOLD type to stress your point and a place to insert pictures (hey, they are worth 1000 words, but I guess that’s 860 too many…)
So, that’s my list, so far. I’m sure there are many more who have used Twitter much longer and have many and probably better suggestions – what would you add?
