Top 10 Ways Twitter Could Improve

Are You Addicted?

Are You Addicted?

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?

  1. Larger bio section – limited section now allows little to be found in common with each other
  2. 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!
  3. Enlarged profile area – additional areas could be added to list your industry, marital status, hobbies, etc. – again, more ways to seek commonalities
  4. 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!)
  5. 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.
  6. Tags for posts that merit special attention or good links so that others can seek and find them
  7. Improved user interface – the web-based window is large, chunky and not practical
  8. For those using the web based product – could you auto-refresh the window – please?
  9. Alphabetical listing of those you follow and those who follow you
  10. 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?
