Editors’ Choice

We rely on Twitter to help us express our thoughts and keep up with the news. And with Twitter’s Apple TV app (our 2016 App of the Year), we’ve also got a bigger window into current events and topical discussions. From breaking-news tweets to live video feeds—and even Thursday Night Football—the benefits of that little bird are always getting bigger.

Twitter is a Useful Communication Tool If Used Properly

I began my journey on Social Media on MySpace and now I’m on several different platforms. I spend about equal amount of time between Facebook and Twitter. I use FB for local and National issues and politics as well as communicating with friends. Twitter for me is used almost explicitly for expressing my views and opinions about political issues, including local, state and federal matters.

Social Media can provide excellent platforms for education, news gathering, entertainment and communication but too often censorship is interfering with free speech which will in time render these useless to the populace.

At one time Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc. were all ideas that became realities. Now ideas for new ways to communicate are being explored and coming into fruition with the promise of free expression. If Twitter and Facebook want to stay competitive and remain leaders in this industry my humble opinion is to return to the policies that made your platforms great.

Constant Harassment

Groups of people with cult-like mentalities go around abusing loopholes and making it seem like they are contributing to updates on rules. I have watched Twitter staff use their personal accounts for political arguments while I waited for months to receive responses about harassment. No matter what you do, you will always be susceptible to abuse of bots. They enable anyone willing to abuse the tools they provide. They don’t admit fault. They don’t respond to emails. Everything is automated. There is no actual human interfacing with help requests. Occasionally someone will log on and make it appear like a response is given or the user is being listened to about the very specific events, but they have the responses and user view automated. Twitter does not actually have human employees who understand or care about the user experience. They care about how they experience the platform only. It’s terrible and only gets worse. What appears like an improvement is just more complex automation. They look down on their users like they are working with children or people who are less than they are in any way — intelligence, experience, moral character, understanding of other people, health, mindfulness, etc. What you think you are getting with Twitter is what goes into the front of the human centipede. What you actually get is what comes out of the back end.
