Look I get it’s twitter, and the developers can’t do anything about this but honestly do not go on here unless you wish to be bitter and a political extremist. Thousands of dumb hashtags about trump and cheering because of the deaths so it “owns the GOP” whenever there is a trend started by republicans that has more tweets it sinks to the bottom of the trends and all the one reply tweets screaming about Russian bots are there when you first click on it. The same 6-7 people replying to every political post, twitter deleting my like and retweet on JK Rowling’s controversial tweet about Maya, Christine Pelosi being protected on twitter after supporting a neighbor of a GOP senator who broke the senator’s lung but banning an actor who was showing true images of CNN host Andrew Gillum, intoxicated with meth and with male escorts. All the libs using those “troll bot meters” that are literally just anti trump and blocking everyone who speaks out. You say we’re Russian bots but if we are we ain’t doing anything. Even if your on the left this will push to the extreme end, and conservatives will likely be pushed by harassment. Just don’t download the app, you’re life will be so much better.
I’m updating my review but keeping the old one: When I use the app, I rarely see the Twitter channels I want to follow. Instead, I see other things that I am not interested in. Yet, I get emails every single day, maybe even more than once a day, that contain bait for me to download the Twitter app again. The bait is usually from people or channels that I want to follow. So naturally I get tempted to download the app again. But I’m not going to do it because I don’t feel that I am being treated fairly. What kind of company would want to do that to their customers? PREVIOUS REVIEW:
I’ve download this app several times only to delete it shortly afterwards because it is too invasive. Let me explain. Around ten minutes after I downloaded it yesterday, the app
asked me for access to my photos. When it happened, I remembered the reason why I deleted it the last time. The reason I deleted it the last time was because it was too invasive. I want to use this app but each time
I download it I feel like I’m being ra_ed. Fill in the blanks. Because of this I feel as if I am being repelled. Maybe it’s me, but I feel uncomfortable using this app.
There’s something very big and messed Up happening on Twitter right now.
They have gotten rid of Worldwide trends altogether and on top of that the trends we do see will now be curated trends. This means NOTHING will be organic anymore. Twitter will get to decide what information we have access to, what they want us to know and not know about.
One of Twitter’s greatest features was its ability to easily look at what is going on in the world. Taking this feature away puts us in a bubble, therefore in-communicating the world.
With everything that is going on in the world this seems like not only the worst time to do this but also a very sketchy move
I don’t buy their “show you more relevant content” BS because there’s always been a “For You” tab for this. Then By clicking on other tabs you could see what is trending in your country as well as worldwide in general. Now with this Twitter gets to choose what you see.
I need to understand what this boardroom meeting was like to come up with the general agreement of removing World Wide Trends. Twitter is the # 2 app people receive their news and in their board meeting you all said “you know what! I don’t think people need to know what’s going on with the rest of the world as a collective whole, they can just see a more detailed view of what’s happening where they live....groundbreaking am I right?”....as if we didn’t have that option before guys. I’m not even going to mention the TIMING of this rollout/update. I know this boardroom is not full of old people about to pass away. So I can’t even blame age and being out of touch with reality. For the love of humanity, please get the average man/woman (lower/middle class) in these meetings. Let’s get it together twitter!
You literally said it is vital to see worldwide trends and then you removed worldwide trends? DURING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC.
Why do YOU get too choose what's relevant to my interest?
I'm not interested in your selection.
I'm only interested in what's REALLY happening in the world. FACTS. Give us back Worldwide Trends!!
This is insane to remove a prominent feature on the app and literally separate conversations by country. Insane!! Who the hell was in the meetings with you and thought this was a good idea...a positive progression for the app? Because they need to be fired.
@twitter is the most pathetic useless leftists and democrat biased media available I have ever experienced - they are known to have suppressed communication of conservative or republican members & I feel so strongly after being banned numerous times for the same things I see ignored on a daily basis that I would never buy or support any product ever advertised on this medium - sadly it would be an easy fix by simply moving support from Liberal valley and replacing current management and policy makers
Twitter recently updated its “Worldwide Trends” setting, to where you can only see trends that are near you.
(Ex. You live in the US, you can only see US Trends.)
Twitter was a place many people went including myself to see what was going on throughout the world. It’s extremely disheartening to see such a big platform like twitter take away that from its users. I’ve tried to manually change it, evens change my location; but nothing works and I’m stuck in the US trends.
I have been on twitter for a year and I loved this app up until now. A recent update has taken away the worldwide trending page in a blatant attempt to censor the information we see. Twitter claims it’s to tailor information to each user but it’s giving them the power to curate what they want us to see. In a time when the world needs to stand together, Twitter is trying to divide us by keeping users in an echo chamber based on their location. This is not ok.
seriously? taking away worldwide trends to make the app better? the worldwide trends arent just about coronavirus but the fact that they would do that and try to control the amount of information we see is absurd! people can mute things and block things they don’t want to see you don’t need to do that for us, I mean who is going to take the time to type in each country anyway? no one cares that much, this is a worldwide app so act like it is
Part of what makes twitter so special is it’s ability to show how the world is connected via internet and worldwide trends are such a pivotal part of that, a twitter staple since the very beginning. Why on EARTH would that be removed?? Especially at a time like this when we’re literally experiencing a freaking pandemic. The smell of censorship is strong, if I wanted a site like that I’d reactivate the Facebook page I threw away 5 years ago
