This year, I’ve fallen in love with Twitter. You remember I sent my first tweet just over a year ago, and I’ve never looked back. I launched this blog one year ago, and Twitter connected me with many helpful people.
This Christmas, I’d really appreciate it if you could just change a few things on the service for me and a few hundred million users. Here’s my list:
I’m always getting direct messages saying things like:
“look at this pic of you!”
“someone caught you in this video.”
“Horrible things about you!”
“find out who unfollowed you.”
“Early investors got filthy rich.”
“Someone is making cruel things up about you!”
I don’t know what these are, and I think they may be viruses. Why not create an easy way to report and remove these? Or a “spam alert” button? Then Twitter could sweep them away for good.
Oh, and the people doing this, would you mind putting coal in their stockings?
