What’s your resolution for 2012? If you don’t have any, i have a suggestion; do some make-up
PS: please find below some possible make-up options #IMHO.
If you are just a micro-blog then why do you have the DM facility. Well, if you are a social networking site you need to have a DM option for sure.
But the thumb rule for a social networking site is to facilitate. And your DM option is crippled to facilitate communication!
The major challenge is that i do not know when i get a DM. You should either have a notification counter like Google+ or Facebook on the menu-bar for easier access to messages. Or you show DM’s on our TL. I have missed DM’s which had an urgent nature because i didn’t want to leave my TL and check messages. People are now forced to tweet “Check DM” which of course do not help maintain the secrecy of a DM.
Imagine my girlfriend messaging me our plans to elope and then her spying father getting the alert tweet “Check DM” on my timeline
Your ‘list’ feature is a beautiful option to organise my timeline which otherwise is overcrowded. Useful tweets are lost amongst tweets from the crack-heads who are ‘forced’ to tweet only 100 tweets per hour (alas i cannot stop following them because they are my friends/clients).
With lists i could categorize them and follow people efficiently. But, lists would have been more effective if you had given the option to view multiple lists (timelines) in a single screen. They could be parallelly placed timelines to each other for each lists. Saves my time and effort.
(disclaimer: this might not be a brilliant idea for those who have 100’s of lists. But, a normal user like me would love to have all in one screen)
Please work on your search function. I am unable to search my friends using their names. It would have been great if you could help me with more options like location and gender. #justsaying
- Export DM’s & tweets:
Off-late, i realised that you delete old DM’s. But it was too late as i lost some important information (phone number of the girl i was flirting with #notReally ).
Could you please provide me an option to export my DM’s and tweets (if possible, the mentions too) before you delete it like an angry wife? In case we decide to separate in future, this could be a great memento for me
That’s it for today, i have always made resolutions but never followed. Prove me that your are better than me #dare.
