  • Love it

    By jlindner921
    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.
  • the new update is not great 2.0

    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?“

    Before downloading this app I was a normal girl who strived to get into a good college and be successful. However, the night after I downloaded this app a large blue bird broke through my window and begged me to go on a magically journey with him. I finally agreed and we traveled for many days and many nights. He was kind, romantic and a great listener, that is until he betrayed me and dropped me off in CHINA! He chanted things like “We’re always listening” and “Benghazi was a hoax!”. I spent many weeks and thousands of dollars trying to escape the communism and when I finally did I vowed to get revenge on this bird. In my attempts to get revenge I traveled to many far away lands, aka Walmart, and purchased lots of bird seed and laxative. I then began filling every bird feeder in the neighborhood with my concoction, watching and waiting. I took out many innocent birds in my quest but when the day finally came I was perched at my window as he began consuming my mixture. The blue bird seemed fine at first but then he began pooping EVERYWHERE. He could hardly fly straight as the brown and white goo erupt from his buttocks. Eventually came crashing down in defeat and my strangest neighbor found him and cooked him in a blue bird stew the next week. He was delicious. His hatred for my main man Trump only made my victory sweeter.
  • Videos are glitchy

    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
  • Tech support is garbage, email support is garbage

    By brandii_m
    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.
  • Fascism now belongs to the far left

    By El Doinko
    When you silence your opposition, it is the purest form of fascism in action. Not sure why anyone would use a platform that deliberately muzzles them at will. You’re okay as long as you toe the line, but best you not slip or face their consequences. This platform does not represent fair and open conversation, it prefers cancel culture and bullying. This should be the antithesis of liberal culture, not something they embrace. Have to truly wonder what this new version of inclusive, compassionate & caring (sarcasm heavily implied) leadership will do to this once great nation and its people. There is no longer any notion of coming together, we have been wedged apart in a divide and conquer approach to diplomacy. Our forefathers warned us, but we were too blind and ignorant to pay heed. We need to come back to the safety of the middle and purge the insanity of the lunatic fringe. We do not have to be in agreement on everything, but we do need to be true to our Republic or else lose it forever. Twitter will never allow us to stand together or even have the discussion of whether we should. It’s how they will maintain power and influence over us all.
  • Political bias

    By KoriB96
    Twitter has drawn a line in the sand and said the conservatives in the United States of America are no longer allowed to use this platform, but the liberals can do whatever they want. They used the guise of preventing violence, but we all know that was a lie. They didn’t like the opinions of the other sides so they started by banning the President then they moved on to everyday Americans’ accounts and said you follow conservative content so you must be banned. If they truly wanted to avoid inciting violence they wouldn’t be censoring people who don’t agree with them. They would invite them to have open conversations to try and reach a compromise or at least better understand their views. Instead they have made half the country angry and scared about their rights slowly getting taken away. When people fear for their futures and feel they have nothing left to loose, chaos can ensue and this company had a part of this. Also keep in mind they are fine with people sending threats to conservatives, calling for the assassination of the president, and of course just overall burning down of cities. But that’s ok but it’s on the side they agree with.
  • Censorship

    By knuk n futz
    It brings the worse out of people. How you decide who is violating your policy is very subjective. You let known foreign terrorist countries open an account which is beyond belief. You promote China propaganda for the almighty buck. I would say you have failed in your responsibility to the American people. There are two sides to everything in life and when it comes to differences you pick and choose who gets to post. Unfortunately it’s the narrative that fits your company so you should look in the mirror(Twitter employees)and say did I do the right thing at work today. Let people think for themselves. Hopefully one day people will realize that corporations like yours and our government wants division. We are all on the same team but that doesn’t matter to either of you, some in this country want China to be our leader. No thanks. You will reflect one day and say was it worth it. I will answer that for you, no. Life is short and a hard journey so be responsible and let voices be heard that don’t offend others and your fact checking needs significant work. Lies are told everyday on MSM because they don’t fact check before releasing.
  • App is great until you need support

    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!
  • Perhaps this is a better way to get through to YOU

    By ackkevink
    I have been on Twitter for almost 10 years now, and I love the app. However, two weeks ago you sent me an email saying I supposedly violated the rules and I would be locked out of my account for 72 hours. Well guess what, it’s been 312 hours later and I’m still locked out with absolutely no contact from you whatsoever as to when I can get back in to my account!! I have tried several times filing an appeal as to the suspension, yet ZERO contact or answers from you AT ALL!! Did I say something harsh to someone, yes I admit that I did. I did NOT however promote any violence or supposed hate, or threaten someone’s life. I consider myself a conservative, and if that’s the problem you have, then just admit that’s the problem to me and everyone else and we can all move on. However if you allow a liberal or left leaning person to say whatever they want with no repercussions, then I’m afraid you are going to have a much bigger problem on your hands. So please, for the sake of humanity, just respond to me and tell me how long I’m going to be locked out for so at least I can move on.
