“Oh no, not another Twitter bashing post.”  I know that is what some of you are thinking right now. In fact, most of the people who decided not to read this post probably thought the same thing.

Question TwitterSo before I get going let me reassure you that I do not hate Twitter. In fact, I really, really like it.

“Now he’s going to tell us what he likes about it in a negative way — been there, seen that, got the t-shirt!”

Well, no I’m not.  I’m actually going to tell you the things that I hate about Twitter.  That doesn’t mean that I hate Twitter or even think that Twitter is doing anything wrong.  This is just about the things that I wish were different although I know that they can’t be.

Now, I’ve come back after working on the draft of this post and found that it is just too long for a single post, so I’m going to split it up to make things more manageable.  If that hasn’t scared you off yet, here are the links to the other 4 posts in this series.

  • Lost in the Stream talks about the pitfalls of trying to follow too many people at once.
  • Signal to Noise is a discussion of what the noise level on Twitter does in my attempts to follow.
  • Alone in the Crowd follows on the idea of signals being lost from the other perspective — i.e. my tweets not being seen.
  • What’s Next? is the final post and looks at what solutions I am planning to try to deal with these issues.

I’m looking forward to hearing what your experiences are with Twitter and what solutions that you’ve been able to come up with for the problems you’ve encountered.
