Twitter Does Spring Cleaning
I’ve been waiting for the blog post about the changes over at Twitter. Among other things, search is on the top of the page now (which it should be of course), and there are some changes done to both profile pages when not logged in, and the find and follow pages. Read all about it in the launch post, and be sure to follow The Blog Herald on Twitter.
This is the first step in our current effort to clean up a few areas of the site that we know need some work. We have a few more fixes to make in the near future (also for SMS and m.twitter.com) before we get on to the exciting new features we have planned for the rest of the year!
Really? Here’s hoping it’ll be more local SMS numbers, but I’m guessing it involves MMS:ing images and video. What do you think?
Thord Daniel Hedengren is a designer, writer, and blogger, and also the former editor of The Blog Herald. He used to be a hotshot in the gaming industry in Sweden, but sold everything and went International. Most recently he wrote a book called Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, and does loads of kickass design.
Cosmetic changes are all very well, but makes no difference to anyone using a third party desktop/mobile Twitter client.
Please please please be posting pics directly from the phone. I know about TwitPic, and I haven’t bothered to set up mobile postings yet. But if image posts were “native,” I’d do it in a heartbeat.
I am having a lot of problems trying to come up with what else Twitter can do, the ability to MMS pictures to Twitter is one thing but they can barely keep their servers up just dealing with text, picture messaging is probably quite a ways off.
I finally joined Twitter. I like the service in theory, but it has a LOT of problems.
True enough. I’m only on the Twitter web page when I need to read up anyway.
