  • Can we mute Coronavirus trending topics?


    By snapchat hotdog
    I enjoy Twitter a lot, and since being quarantined at home, my daily usage of social media platforms has naturally increased quite a bit. I have been able to mute tweets containing the words “coronavirus” and “COVID” and things related, but I wish there was a feature to mute entire trending topics about the virus in them instead of just tweets. The majority of the things in the “For You” category on my account are all related to coronavirus and it’s making me feel anxious and hopeless for anything positive in the future. I just don’t want to see them anymore I understand wanting to keep everyone with the most up to date info as possible since we are navigating a pandemic, but I’m worried for people with mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Constantly seeing things related to COVID coupled with being at home and possibly jobless (or essential without having time to breathe right now) can really exacerbate thinking and behavior that people with certain issues have had under control before now. I understand if this is something that can’t really be done, because I know news outlets and other sources are talking about it all the time but I wanted to at least try doing something. If it isn’t possible I’ll just uninstall for a while.

  • 🐥Twitter’s Paradox 🦉


    By ShaolinsDragon
    After finding my way to Twitter under random mysterious circumstances lol I just chalked it up to the universe wanting me here. I still struggle with Social Media but I must admit...I’m enjoying my time here, reading updated news (factual news & by choice), reading little thoughts by random people like myself (Known & Unknown) it doesn’t matter to me and sharing my own whether they matter, have an impact or whatever else. It’s quite an interesting place. I’m glad I’m here now but with the awareness of not getting wrapped up in some “Bad Troll” nonsense. Disinformation, bullies, negative arguments, name calling, fake accounts, identity theft...all reasons I’ve avoided Twitter & social media for so long. But I’m trying. We’ll give it a whirl and see where it lands. But overall...I like Twitter. Any medium or place where ideas, positive influences, inspiration, real news, jokes, fun & friendship can live happily...I’m all for it. I know you want to be a positive place Twitter. The internet is still new...we’ll get it right one day. And I do know you’ve taken massive efforts to keep it a positive place. We all need that. So thanks 🙏🏽
  • 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?“
  • Bias


    By lonesome shadow
    I will probably lose my account or be put in Twitter jail for saying what I’m about to say truth is Twitter is bias the people that run Twitter are biased Twitter is racist and allows certain factions just spread hate. Twitter founder and the folks in charge only spread and shares the left point if you are conservative they go all the way to silence you to suspend your account to kick you off Twitter because you do not agree with them. This is not an open forum for people to talk and discuss things as adults this is a dictatorship nothing more. The Twitter staff need to be fair need to be balanced I need to allow both sides to speak freely to have an open forum to have a truly a truly responsible social network to weigh all things and then the let the people make their own decision for themselves for what they decide this is what it’s all about and ending I can only hope that all can learn and grow together and stop the divide of this country and its people is enough said.
  • Addicting in a Very Bad Way


    By EvaFitts
    Twitter isn’t functional because you can’t easily remove followers. Twitter doesn’t recognize that people have different needs over time. Many of us got on expressly to discuss politics. You follow and are followed by thousands of people. Now you want to switch to your real name and focus on people doing a particular workout challenge or use the account for some other, less toxic reason. You either have to delete the account, wait a period of time and start over (losing all your follows) or block every account you don’t want following you anymore, one at a time. Twitter is full of bots supporting the right wing, far left extremists and fake accounts. If you’re there for politics you can’t use your real name because you will be threatened and harassed. One person told me she could find out everything about me and ruin my life. Someone I follow used her real name and a harasser find out the name of the woman’s father’s business and filled yelp with negative reviews. It can at times be a place for “friendship” or learning and even uplifting but it can also be a vile, depressing place.
  • 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.
  • 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.
