Twitter Moving to An Algorithmic Timeline?
Chatter everywhere that Twitter will introduce an algorithmic timeline next week. In other words, instead of seeing tweets as people will post them, Twitter will decide on your behalf what posts to see in what order. And if that’s the only option that I’m given, Twitter will lose 99% of its functionality for me.
Between this, the “love” button, and the rumored “GIF” button, it looks like Twitter is trying to copy Facebook. Guess what, Twitter, you’re not going to get out of the hole you’re in by becoming a crappy version of Facebook. There’s already a crappy version of Facebook. It’s called FACEBOOK!
