  • 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!
  • Days Gone By


    By im4him4ever
    Things with twitter use to be great then you started with this censoring crap. Even if we strongly disagree with someone that is what made twitter fun. When you first started you advertised your product as an avenue to voice our opinions. It didn’t matter if the opinions were wrong or even untrue we could still say them. If choice words were used or they were offensive the customer had the options to block that tweet or report it to you. However, we were not stopped or hindered in anyway of saying what we thought, felt, or believed. But these are “Days Gone By”. We can no longer do that and in many cases we can’t even read the opinions of others. Censorship and curtailing a person right of freedom of speech is wrong, just plain wrong on so many levels. Twitter you should wake up before it’s too late. The handwriting is truly on the wall.
  • Suspension of people’s handle


    By Desmondjude
    No doubt has become a very beautiful place for people from across the globe to share their views on issues both National and international, people placing adverts, and so many things but to some extent their has been evidence of suppressing of freedom of speech and expression, suppression of truth from reaching the public all by means of suspending the handle and tagging it misinformation. This results in people loosing their hard earned Twitter followings. My suggestion is that instead of Twitter to suspend people’s account please don’t air the tweet . Just after typing and sending it out as a tweet Twitter should warn the person not to deliver the tweet or Twitter should not allow the said information to go through so that the person’s account won’t be suspended. Again their seems to be some sort of preferential treatment to some people. Please let their be a level playing field for everyone on Twitter. Apart from the above Twitter is sweet and beautiful. Thank you
  • Bad for my blood pressure


    By johnghicks
    When scrolling down at a certain point it just stops and doesn’t display any more posts. Often a post I tap on disappears or the app will scroll to the top after I tap on the post and I am unable to find that post again. Back-end administration is not even handed and is shrouded in secrecy. For example, blue star “verification” is a joke as many easily verified legitimate sources aren’t verified even though they apply when other accounts favored by those in control get verified immediately. Posts are not handled evenly either. For example, Policies are a joke and are applied unevenly to posts those in control don’t like but not to posts they do like. Terms of Service also seem to be applied unevenly. If enough of a certain group of users complain they will remove or restrict posts and or users based on mob mentality. Certain Chronic violators are allowed to continue on the platform but others are booted off for much lesser infractions and it is usually around political views. If this is a forum for free speech then the powers that be are doing a bad job of it. I’m going to use the Parler app.
  • Opinion


    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.
  • They don’t care and it shows lol


    By chichikamish
    Like the title says they don’t actually do any work into moderating their site. You might think there’s someone out there reading the tweets that go out but if you search specific slurs you’ll find a myriad of tweets with the n word or f word in them and twitter doesn’t bat an eyelash but get into a discussion with a pedophiliac apologist and tell them they are trash for condoning cp art well then they’re ready to ban or suspend your account. But to be perfectly honest I’m ok being banned from a site that offers a platform to racists, nazis, pedophiles, transphobia, and the absolute cesspool of society. I’m actually glad this has happened and made me realize what a piece of garbage this platform is. It might seem better than the tumblrs of the world and even facebook but is a smidgen better when it comes to social media? Just because it gives the appearance of giving a crap doesn’t mean it does and believe me, Twitter is no different than the facebooks of the world. They would sell you D list celebs selling flat tummy tea but you just have to have targeted ads on. Great service for a dumpster fire I guess...
  • Censorship Galore


    By VickieToriii
    Twitter didn’t used to be this way. They’ve seem to have lost their complete minds as soon as the 2020 presidential election took place and haven’t recovered since. They have since been exposed for not just going after the president of the United States, but hundreds of thousands of conservative accounts or accounts that dare question the popular media narrative. Let me be very clear. What is popular does not equal what is right. There is plenty of wrongdoing on all sides of the aisle. To censor the right for incidents I can cite for the left as well is inappropriate, a threat to our democracy, and should make us all question where twitter stands as a platform that wouldn’t be who they are today if it wasn’t for the people (us). This is clear by the billions twitter is loosing in the stock market as we speak. Let the people speak or we will not stick around. Twitter should not be allowed more power than all branches of our government in respect to issues like this. My account is permanently deactivated for my lifetime, unless twitter rights it’s wrongs and changes ownership. Until then, get wrecked in the stocks! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!
  • Opinion is mine.


    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.
  • Bias


    By Patty Angel
    Twitter is a left wing bias site. I’m Independent and see how bad it has gotten. When will or will it ever be a fair platform? I’m currently on a 3 day limited restriction but have no idea why! I haven’t broken any Twitter rules! I get those captchas asking if I’m a bot but I do everything possible not to do repetitive things just for this reason. I put out some interesting tweets that went a little viral by maybe 1,000 and because I got a lot of followers in a day I go to Twitter jail? Really? I already only follow back so many at a time so I don’t get in trouble but you find a reason anyway and don’t tell me why! I hope one day someone creates a site that is fair to its users. I’m never threatening in any way but Twitter likes to restrict me for no good reason! I mostly just tweet what’s out on another source so why am I in trouble? I’ve seen people threatening on the left but never get in trouble! Hopefully one day someone will come up with a less bias and Constitutional platform. I believe in Free Speech but would never threaten anyone but I see it all the time!
  • CHANGED THE WAY REPLIES LOOK


    By Camshoz
    The replies now look different. They looked different earlier in the day, and the change looks sort of like it went back to the way it did before the previous design for the reply interface. Obviously, the way the app looks is subject to opinion, if people like the way it looks or not, so I’m not saying the app is horrible just because I hate the change. I love Twitter and use it every day. I also have autism, and I get set in to my routines and I and other people with autism take change very poorly, and it legitimately causes us great distress when things change from how we’re used to. Since the design of the interface is simply an aesthetic difference, I would be so so so happy if there were a choice as to how the tweets be displayed, because the frustration and discomfort from the change is hard to describe.
