Interesting post by Howard Lindzon about what Twitter could and should do with 100m dollars. I would really appreciate it if they would work on step #1 rather soon…
Here is what happened: I manage several accounts and one of them, a fictional TV character, received a lot of attention on FollowFriday, so I decided to add all the new followers. I logged out of my main account, hard refreshed and logged in with the other account. Adding followers is easy, it takes just one click.
After going through several pages I realized that I was clicking through more followers than i should have. I went back to my mails to get a number (101) but had clicked through at least 10 pages (aka 200 new followers). How was that possible? It turns out, for some reason twitter had logged in to my main account again by itself and I was adding followers to that account. Major disaster. I have no clue if this log-in issue is due to twitter or Firefox but it is not good. I tried this several times and it was reproducible.
Anyway, I fired up another browser logged in with the TV characters account and in two minutes added all the new followers. Then there was the disaster to remedy. I remembered Robert Scoble complain on a a recent Gillmor Gang about Foursquare… Let me tell you, unfollowing 200 people on twitter is no fun either. It takes about 5-10 seconds per person, you have to click twice, hope there is no Ajax-hang-up and click through page after page.
With all that money, please fix the UI, and while you’re at it, make it easier to get in contact with you!
