For someone who loves brevity Twitter has always been my favourite social network. It is great for making quick posts and updates, which is probably why it has become very popular with journalists.
When I finally purchased Tweetbot I suddenly, and finally, enjoyed using lists. How you access them in Tweetbot is very easy and an intuitive way to de-clutter your stream. Also a great way to follow different news sources without having to sift through 30 tweets to find a tweet from a friend.
However, the greatest feature that Tweetbot offers is the mute function.
I know it sounds strange that you want to mute people you follow or certain words, etc they might post, but even if Twitter encourages brevity in one post, too many are too eager to post a lot of rubbish.
Even now and then some of your favourite tweeters gets an onset of tweetarrhoea. Just hit mute for a day, a week, a month or forever, if it seems as if they suffer from chronic brain farts.
With that sad, if there is a market for such a function, it makes me wonder a bit. Do people actually tweet too much, or do we follow too many tw
aits? Or is it a little bit of both?
Not that it really matters now when you have such a wonderful feature. Too bad it does not extend in to the real world. So many people that I would mute IRL.
