People, in general, are not contented on what the online world or the internet has to offer. There are still many “how I wish this site have something like this and that” thoughts roaming around the world wide web. And yes, I am one of those people who have that kind of thought. But you can’t blame me (or other people) for being like that. Sometimes, changes or feature addition are kind of a need for certain sites and its users. One big example is TWITTER. Below are some of my thoughts about some features that for sure, TWITTER.COM and its owners/programmers/developers are thinking of adding (soon) at their awesome website.
Twitter Features I Wish Twitter Website Have
I don’t know if you also care about how many people unfollows you or who unfollows you. But me, I care a lot about it. Maybe you are wondering why? Well, simply because, I want to know if my recent action, tweets or retweets caused my followers to unfollow me. If I know who unfollows me, then I can send them a tweet or two asking why they unfollow me. I know you might say its just a plain waste of time and you don’t care if a person unfollow you but for me, its kind of important.
By the way, I am using who.unfollowed.me website to check who my unfollowers are.
Mass Delete Twitter Direct Messages
Ah yes, this one is a twitter feature that almost all of us are still waiting to happen to twitter website it self. With the new format, layout or design the twitter have, still, they didn’t included this feature. There are so many 3rd party apps or software that can do this mass deleting of twitter direct messages but it will be more nicer if we can do this action at the twitter website itself.
Option To Mute A Single Tweep/Person
With my day in and day out tweeting, there are lot of messages or tweets at my timeline saying “I wish there is a mute option here at twitter”. For sure, 3rd party apps and mobile apps (speaking of mobile apps, you might want to check out this Best Twitter Mobile and Desktop Application lists of mine) as well can do this feature. But again, much nicer if twitter will include this feature at their respected website as well.
Automatic Redirect Of Old Username To New Username
This one, I think, is a must! The redirection of old twitter name into the new one when a certain person changed his/her username. There are times when people around the twitter world have to change their names. The reason behind it is endless. This changes causes confusion and most of the time, broken links if that twitter name is linked from a certain website, blog or social networks as well. This is also one reason why I can’t change my twitter name or handle because I believe that somehow somewhere over the internet, my twitter name is linked from certain website and that link my broke if I change my name. If this username redirect for twitter is alive or at work, then changing names will be such an easy thing to do for many twitter users around the globe.
There you go! those are my twitter feature sort of request to twitter.com itself. How about you? Do you have any twitter feature in mind that you want to be heard and taken care of? Why not let me or us know about it via the comment section of this post and let us talk about it.
And oh by the way, follow me on twitter will you? its @ronniedare
Other Features – Added By My Twitter Friends
Mass Unfollow Inactive, Talkative And Quiet Tweeps
Ok, this one is a suggestion of my good twitter friend @anthony_andres. He said that, this feature is some kind of a must have at twitter.com website. Why? simply because, it makes your twitter timeline or following counts at more clean and fresh state. If you will know who are the inactive twitter users, you can unfollow them easily. If you will know who are the talkative ones but really tweeting nonsense (close to flooder) and who are the quite ones (not communicating or tweeting with you at all), you can easily unfollow them with this feature.
As of today, this feature is available for 3rd party website/apps like manageflitter.com and tweepi.com.
