In the last week Twitter has added two new applications for users. The first application is adding lists to your page. The lists allow you to categorize your friends, family, co-workers or any other category you want to come up with. This is useful if you are looking for a particular person and you don’t have time to look through all of your tweets or the people you follow to find them. Some Tweeters may not have this application yet because they were distributed to a limited amount of accounts but I’m sure it will be coming to a page near you soon.
The downside to this is that when you press to retweet you cannot make a comment, you just automatically retweet the message. That takes some of the fun out of retweeting. You can still retweet the old fashion way of RT and then cutting and pasting the tweet, but I know that is like so five minutes ago.
I’m sure Twitter will figure out a way sooner or later, on how to make a comment before the retweet, on the retweet button.
Twitter also has things popping up on the page when the curser moves across the page, telling the viewer where the retweet came from or the fact that the retweet source cannot be identified. That is a little annoying.
I hope Twitter does not go overboard with too many things. I like things to be simple sometimes or I feel like my head will explode.
What do you think do you like all the pop ups and craziness or do you like things simple sometimes?
