Hey, TWTR, by Dustin Curtis

I love Twitter, but it’s a failing company. I hardly know anyone personally that uses it.

I use Tweetbot more than any other app on my phone: for gathering information to write about, and to follow all the topics that I’m passionate about.

Dustin Curtis gives us his first tweetstorm, and it’s a good one.

Hey, TWTR.

Your absolute, objective incompetence confuses and infuriates me with the power of a thousand suns.

Get your shit together.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

I don’t care whose feelings I hurt by calling you incompetent anymore. Your company is on fire and you are not doing anything to fix it.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Double tweet length to 256 chars. No more fucking philosophical discussions about this. It’s just obvious. Will improve discourse. Do it.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Add a god damned edit button. Jesus Christ.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Every tweet should have a big red button that says “report this asshole”. Duh. Then hire a ton of people to actually get rid of the Nazis.

Send your product team to Southeast Asia where they can see first hand how shitty their product performs there. It’s being crushed.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Focus less on the bullshit day to day stuff that people complain about and work on the actual product. Make big, sweeping changes.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Your product is not growing because it’s not compelling. And you keep re-arranging deck chairs. Stop. Blow it up and re-think it. TWTR 2040.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Your competitors are eating your your core competency alive and you’re making half-assed deals with the NFL. Stop that distracting nonsense.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

You’re a broadcast news/opinion/gossip publisher with innovative kinds of interactive features. Stop not knowing who you are. Embrace it.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Your HQ should have a hundred phones running every messaging app. Steal the features! “My Day” is an obvious one to experiment with.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

Twitter has insane potential to change the way information is shared, on a human level. Not since TV has there been so much opportunity.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

If Twitter went away, we’d enter a social web dark ages. You can’t sell. You can’t die. You have to exist, because you’re so important.

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

So stop fucking around. Get to work, make this app not so godawfully hard to use. (Writing these Tweets in a connected way was painful.)

— dustin curtis (@dcurtis) July 27, 2017

This is my first tweetstorm and now I’m even angrier. No wonder celebrities use Instagram. That was fucking ridiculous.
