Twitter used to list tweets in chronological order of them being posted. I don't know how it done now, but it can be impossible to find a specific tweet. Let me explain.
For those I was most interested in, their tweet would become a text message to my phone. Then Twitter extended the length of tweets from 140 characters to 280. Consequently I was rarely seeing the full message when it came as an sms and so had to go to my Twitter account or app to find it if I wanted to read more. Unlike Facebook, there doesn't seem to any way to order tweets chronologically.
Invariably to find it I would have to go to the person's profile who I follow who tweeted by scrolling through the list of 90 I follow and then find the message in the list of their tweets, which I also don't think is in chronological order, but usually I could find it there.
I am sick of this very tiresome business, meant in two ways. I don't want to miss what certain people tweet, so I am not leaving Twitter but I have culled my list of 90 down to 14. By only following 14, I hope to be able to easily find the tweet I am interested in. In fact by only following 14, I might even have time to use Twitter properly, rather than relying on text messages of tweets
I lose, you lose if you were one of 76 I used to follow and Twitter loses. Was it really a good idea of Twitter to make this change?
Hmm. I just noticed Public Transport Users Association occasional spokesperson and long time blogger Daniel Bowen has become famous enough to get a verification tick for his account, meaning it is the real Daniel Bowen and not a fake Daniel Bowen. It might be amusing to read the tweets of a fake Daniel Bowen.
