Editors’ Notes

We rely on Twitter to help us express our thoughts and keep up with the news. And with Twitter’s Apple TV app, we’ve also got a bigger window into current events and topical discussions. From breaking-news tweets to live Periscope feeds, the benefits of that little bird are always getting bigger.

Thank you Twitter

Twitter is far more than most people think. For me it has brought me into a community of wonderful caring people from all walks of life. There is no class system, all are equal. You could be chatting to a scientist or a road sweeper. Twitter is communicating in real-time, unlike the other popular social media platform, so you know there is nearly always someone there to talk to. There are many different clubs that meet on Twitter using hashtags to come together. There is support, both emotional and sometimes financial. Some who are socially isolated or housebound in real time feel part of a community, Twitter is their lifeline. Some who are suffering a personal tragedy or serious illness are supported and some can share celebrations. Some who are lonely have friends and those friends meet in real time ‘tweetups’. Lost or stolen pets can be publicised and sometimes reunited. Yes there are trolls and not everyone who uses Twitter are nice people, but the good outweigh the bad, and it’s easy enough to block them and to warn others to do the same. Twitter is so much more than you can imagine. Twitter is so much more than just a virtual platform.

Shadowban Epidemic & Missing Replies

Twitter is meant to be a form of Social Media, with the emphasis on “Social” especially for the 1000’s of people suffering from loneliness, depression, anxiety and illnesses that leave them housebound and/or without physical socialisation, so it’s extremely upsetting that Twitters algorithms are so messed up that people are now getting Shadowbanned because these broken algorithms think the people are Bots. And the whole “Missing Replies” saga, where your wee speech bubble shows you’ve a reply to your Tweet but when you click on it, there’s nothing there! Notification Bans too...
And no amount of Tweeting to Support gets us anywhere, let’s face it though, it’s an automated service that goes round and round in circles and you never get a reply/response/or fix ~ Where’s the Human Customer Support?
I think the powers that be need to get their fingers out their well payed pies and realise that they should be looking after their customers!!! You are putting peoples lives at risk!
