30 Twitter tips hath September: How would you change Twitter?

September 25, 2009

In September, we’re offering a Twitter tip a day. Send us your thoughts and suggestions.

[Tweet this tip]
Day 25: What is one thing you would change about Twitter?
Tell us in the comments.

I’ll list a few I’d like to see happen …

  • As promised, please make retweeting an official feature and not an informal “RT.”
  • It’s a little late for millions, but Twitter finally added an intro guide of sorts. But I’d like to see new users have the option for an online Twitter boot camp to show them how to use the features and get started. (With Facebook, it’s usually pretty easy to get going, but Twitter? Not so much.)
  • Block the spammers. Too many are driving away the legit users. It should be easy enough to monitor accounts for “spammy” activities (like @replying hundreds of people in 10 minutes with the same shady link).

What do you want to fix in Twitter? Leave a comment below, please.

(And also, tell us how Twitter has changed your life.)

    No more fake followers! They’re driving me crazy. I used an iPhone hashtag last night and had about 10 within 30 seconds. It’s disappointing and somewhat disturbing. @CarmenSisson
