  • Photo background screen Dec 27, 2020

    By absmit
    I love Twitter. The trending topics and highlights on the search page are a great way to see what’s up in the world. And I love the way we get a choice as to whether we want top tweets or chronological tweets (unlike Instagram, which forces its own algorithm on us). There are only two things that matter to me that could be improved. When I go to my lists now, if I click on a tweet, when I go back to the list, the list has refreshed back up to the top/most recent tweet. I want it to go back to where I was, not to the top. The second, most important thing is how media is displayed. About a year ago y’all updated to make the screen that pictures are set on one of the lowlights of the picture, which takes the contrast out of the borders. As an amateur photographer, I don’t want the backing screen to be a lowlight, I want it to be black. Black is the contrast that best frames our photos. With the lowlight background, our pictures just fade into the background, which is terrible! Please go back to giving pictures a black backing screen. Many photographers will thank you if you do. I am literally begging you, please change it back.

    Obviously the funniest social media. Y’all are better than the competition but please don’t do any more minor changes. I know it’s not a big deal but moving the bookmark position is quite annoying when we’re instinctively used to it being in the original spot. Now when it’s moved we still click the old spot without realizing and end up having to start over. Also not being able to retweet something without first going to the quote retweet page is manageable but also like.. why would you do that? That ones not as bad but if you keep sneaking in these micro changes then you might turn into Snapchat / Instagram / Facebook and the younger generation (like me - 21M) wants to move on to something that isn’t constantly minorly irritating us. You, Reddit, & TikTok are the main things we use and y’all haven’t been changing too much like your competition but I would hate to see Twitter lose it’s steam because they want to make a quick buck that ends up ruining the app. Just my 2 cents.

  • Free Speech Jan 19, 2021

    By lvhruby
    Free Speech should be free and not censored. John Sullivan who instigated breaking into the capitol building in DC is still on Twitter as is Koemenei and many other radical extremists who think nothing of hurting others physically and verbally, but the President of the USA is banned. For that I give a thumbs down. We should unite under the constitution and be tolerant of others ideas and opinions and uphold our God-given rights to free speech, free religious worship, and to the pursuit of happiness. On the other hand, terrorists should be banned and agitators from groups such as Insurgents, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter. These groups engaged in bashing people, burning businesses, and destroying government property. These people should be banned! Instead, they were released from jail to hurt again, and what they did was praised. What if it was your business and livelihood that was burned to the ground??? Or your home??? There is no insurance against acts of terrorism such as these. Media did nothing to stop this, democratic governors nor mayors stopped it. It was disgusting, despicable behavior and those are the people that are given the right o speak on all the big tech platforms. Something is terribly wrong with those who make the decision to keep encouraging sheer evil behavior.

  • Far too political... Jan 14, 2021

    By Everything-else-was-taken
    Sure, politics are a big part in some people’s lives, but I only go on Twitter to post because everything else is, “Look at that! Look at that! Politics! Your opinion is trash!” Even when you go onto the search page, you don’t see other accounts (like you would on Instagram) it’s the NEWS. If I wanted to see the news, I’d go on television and watch the news. Social media is a place where people should feel free to escape the world’s problems and laugh with others about funny jokes or funny things, not get frustrated and angry because some stupid politician didn’t say hello to someone. There should be a politics option, where you can choose whether or not you want to see any political ads or news or anything. Now, sure, some people might post about it, but I’m talking about going into the search bar to find the account that made a really delicious batch of cookies and you’re bombarded with what’s wrong with our country. I’m tired of seeing it, others are tired of seeing it, maybe it’s time you listen to your consumer and make some changes.

    I used to be able to tap a news article and it would send me to the news app already installed on my phone. NOW it does not do that. It was ease of access and comfort to just tap and immediately read. I tap out of habit and I hit a pay wall. I have to leave Twitter to go into the news app in order to locate and read the article. Please. Fix. This. I checked Twitter and phone settings in hopes of returning it back. No such luck.

  • the new update is not great 2.0 May 20, 2020

    By pajanaparty
    The new update is super confusing to me. Where before you could follow a thread of replies intuitively, it is a lot harder to figure out who is replying to whom. It’s strange how in a social network you have to expand replies so much in order to see every single one. Isn’t the whole idea of being asocial network to be social and see feedback easily? I used to use twitter on a daily basis for friends and news but due to this update I have been avoiding using it. Learn from the old tumblr. Too many replies makes it hard to comprehend what is being said. Edit: So instead of changing how the replies look you decided to make it so only limited people can reply? Interesting wrong choice. One of the most appealing parts of twitter is that anyone can reply. Yes, it can be annoying because of arguments and such, but that means that people looking through the replies can see multiple points of view on a situation. Limiting this is a way that misinformation could spread. With Twitter’s strong take against misinformation in the current political climate it’s a surprising move to ease lies and half truths being passed around. I’ll repeat what I said above with the first update that changed how replies looked “Isn’t the whole idea of being asocial network to be social and see feedback easily?“

They can't even fix that. I had alot of friends on there and now I've got nothing.

    made my twitter account almost 10 years ago an was an avid user on that same account. i was using the app and then sat my phone down for about an hour. when i reopened the app they were asking me to log back in to verify my account. Seeing that I haven’t logged out of twitter i was confused as to why they started to ask me this.i’ve had this account for a long time and the email address i signed up with is one that i no longer had access to. because of this i was unable to reset my password. i tried emailing tech support but they gave me some excuse saying that they couldn’t verify the account and that there was no other way that they could do so. they’ve never asked me to do so before and i am very upset with tech support. i would’ve rather talk to an actual person to explain my problem than send an email that they took a long time to respond to. so now im stuck trying to figure out what my old password was because i don’t want to create a new account. its been 2 weeks since this happened and im very disappointed with their service and lack of communication.

  • Videos are glitchy Nov 29, 2019

    By daniel___9898
    Watching videos on this is so frustrating sometimes because if you try to skip ahead into a video it will just freeze the video and remain frozen until the amount of time you skipped ahead is reached and then it will resume. I know I can unfreeze it by moving the little dial at the bottom to skip through the video but i shouldn’t have to do that. Also i’ve had sound glitches where if you try to skip ahead or rewatch a video once it reaches the end the sound won’t play and i just move the little bar at the bottom to skip through the video left and right until the sound comes back. It’s pretty annoying and happens literally all the time. Fix it bruh y’all millionaires. Instagram does better with their videos like cmon son and I know i’m not the only one experiencing this all my friends get it too. Other than this the app is fine

  • Opinion is mine. Nov 3, 2019

    By Devilthorn135
    It’s a lot better than Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumbler, Tic-Toc, or anything else. The reason being that Twitter is for the highly intelligent people as philosophers and tweet out their ideas. Scientists can throw out new discoveries in 280 characters or less. There is a wealth of fact accounts which tweet old facts. Bots that do what ever that not was programmed to do. There are many webcomic artists and artists in general. News travels quicker around the country or world. Movie trailers, game trailers, show trailers, et cetra. This was my first social to media to own an account on, and for that reason it will be the most idealistic way to experience it. Trust me I’ve been way more active in my iPhone’s account than my PC’s account. My PC’s account was my original while my iPhone’s account came second. Despite this you shouldn’t need any other social media to experience one like this.

  • Wave Rider Dec 28, 2020

    By dat7up8
    Just recently visited Myrtle Beach, I love it, and stayed at a few airbnb places but actually found a hotel downtown cheaper than Airbnb’s with a room with a view... life was a bit of rough seas, but things are looking better and how cool my first twitter account is when I stayed at a place called Wave Rider, and look at my Roses, Roses have love, it feels like I’m finally starting to ride a wave of love, and I didn’t even know the name of the airbnb I would use was called wave rider... and twitter I’ve gotten retweets and likes faster here than any of the other apps...I feel twitter compliments the situation and I’m honestly impressed, because some apps Ive used weeks and have no likes, twitter within days of opening an account likes and retweets. Good stuff twitter! I also want to work on poetry a little and can not wait to try. Thank you twitter for showing my posts some love, in good timing. Thank you Joey The Rose Man

    By ABHudson234
    I love twitter and have always loved twitter until they updated their rules and policies. they are too strict for my linking now. i’m not understanding how tweeting in bold texts or following/unfollowing too many ppl at once or even tweeting how you feel about a certain political issue can be looked at as a threat. i understand if someone is giving misleading information or threatening someone else but some of their rules just doesn’t make any sense and is uncalled for. Also, i don’t like how you can’t use the same number for multiple accounts. It also says you can in their rules and policies but it won’t let you do it and they need to take that out of their rules so it won’t be misleading. i don’t like having to tweet and then delete my tweets cause i’m overthinking that it’s against twitters rules when it’s not. i respect their rules and policies but i just feel some of them are too strict and not really harmful to be considered a threat.

  • Glitch in DMs Apr 13, 2019

    By Kyxelplays
    I got this glitch where it tells me a notification that someone is direct messaging me but when I go there, no one has messaged me and there’s nothing at all. I found a person who messaged me in the request section from my email later on but when I got to my Twitter account, it wasn’t there. So I blocked the person who sent me a message. But the notification in DMs is still there. No one has ever DMed me in the past weeks by now. I logged out and logged in, notification is still there. I deleted the app and reinstalled the app, it didn’t work. I’ve had this glitch notification for over a month or two. This annoyed me so much. It’s only my account that has this glitch, I don’t know to fix it. Edit: Alright I fixed it. I somehow played around with my settings and turned off quality filter then I finally saw the person’s direct message. Now I gotta remembered how to do it if it happens again.

  • Needs More Characters Oct 3, 2019

    By FrustratedAndAnnoyed1414
    If you use Twitter for more than just retweeting and liking other people’s tweets- I’m sure you have come across the hindering effect that the very short character count has on unverified accounts. Tweeting with links to articles and such can be quite challenging due to the limitations of the character count. Spaces, characters in the links you are pasting to the tweet, and people you are tagging should absolutely NOT be included in the total character count; this just takes away from the ability to include important information in the tweet itself. This is an incredibly user-friendly app that allows for countless abilities to connect with other people- that is why I am giving it 4 stars, because other than the fact that blank spaces and characters contained in links count as total characters affected by the limitations, this app is perfect.

    I don't like this app for the reason that you can't go all the way back from the beginning of your Twitter and read all your tweets. Another thing, if you go back it wants to always jump back to the beginning every time you get through reading something in the past on your own tweets. Makes it real aggravating will you can't ever really enjoy reading your own tweets.

    Every time I try to takeoff the sensitive mode it doesn’t wanna take it off. I tried doing the instructions on Google I’ve tried even just going through all the settings and change and everything differently and that’s not the half of it, I’ve had my account blocked or suspended just for following people I’ve been suspended just for a re-tweeting a tweet I’ve had so many problems with it and I just got it this month and it’s really aggravating and I had a couple of accounts but they were so long ago that I didn’t even remember the password to them and it was so hard just for me to delete them like I had to have a phone number I had to have a PIN number or just something that was just dumb and stupid and wouldn’t just let me delete the accounts. But I successfully deleted them but I’m still having trouble with the sensitivity and I would really appreciated if you would fix it or something because I’ve tried literally everything.

    By cliffor26917473
    Twitter is not what it’s cracked up to be. While it is a good site and I enjoyed it as far as the making friends and the camaraderie and discussions. But after only being on the site for almost 3 months. Given her 24 hours Suspension then a one-week suspension for supposedly offensive tweets! Now I have been suspended for four months. Have no idea why. All attempts To get in touch with or communicate with Twitter have been in vain! All I get is the company line we will try to solve this within two or three days although it may take longer. And this is been for four months now! No courtesy of a reason why I was suspended no communication whatsoever! And anything I said on Twitter was not near as bad as some of the Liberals have put on there and still have their accounts. Would really like to have my Twitter account back but something needs to be done with some of the people who are letting their politics influence who is tweets they don’t like and suspend people for!

  • Likes and dislikes Mar 29, 2020

    By seph777
    As a millennial having been born in the early 80’s I have the viewpoint from a world originally without the broad connection of the internet. To see the world become so connected and so much smaller and more convenient is like watching the planet mature right in front of my eyes; It’s breathtaking. Apps like Twitter give everyone a podium to design as your own with which to stand upon and as followers increase your crowd becomes larger, but your also part of others crowd. Anything important to you, anything that drives your life and fuels your heart, can be shared or supported from your couch. This positive greatly outweighs most negatives which are usually the fault of the human condition. We all have to let each other have a podium even if we disagree and that is a challenge, but good too, because otherwise you wouldn’t even know who to disagree with. My only real personal issue other than the nastiness of some due to human condition is the fact that it’s hard to hit that like button when I don’t necessarily agree with the tweet. I am still missing those reaction buttons from Facebook letting anyone know whether I am happy or sad or angry about the information I am subjected to and a similar format would be great. Still those small issues don’t outweigh the connection and platform for me and I would love to see the whole world of people so close. Thank you!

  • App is great until you need support Feb 9, 2019

    By Tonkalynn
    I’ve had twitter for about 8 years now and recently have been locked out of my account due to age restriction. I’m currently well over the age to have an account but due to EU regulation twitter combatted this by locking accounts made by people under the age of 13. Being from America, I don’t understand why that should affect my account yet here we are. However that’s not my biggest issue. I’ve never had to use twitter support until my account got locked out but because there is no email or account not on twitter for twitter support, there is no way for me to contact the support team for help. If I try to submit a form, it says my account is locked. I can’t send a message because my account is locked. I made a new account but it will direct me to send a message from my locked account, which then proceeds to tell me I can’t submit a form from my locked account. Twitter support needs a serious revamp considering it’s only useful for people with WORKING accounts; if my account worked then I wouldn’t need to contact twitter support in first place!

    Not sure if it's a compatibility issue with my phone (pixel 4a) or my keyboard (SwiftKey) but it's impossible to tweet without an awkward workaround. I have to attach a picture, then start typing, then take the picture off and I can keep typing. Can't just open a tweet and type. I keep hoping an update will fix it (been going for a few months now) but so far no luck. This doesn't happen when replying, only when composing a tweet.
