I just had an #IDEA to enhance user experience #ux for @Twitter as a product. Hey @Jack, hope you are listening..?
You have a feature called Threads or we call it Tweet Storm. So, I can write a series of tweets and connect them to make a real #Blogging like experience.
Now, the IDEA is to Allow users to:
1. #Rearrange the tweets in different sequences.
2. #Add tweets at the beginning of #TweetStorm.
3. Add tweets in the middle of the #TweetThread.
Now, It’s just a thought, I really don’t know, what all can be its use cases.
Same as a new #Startup Product Idea, it totally depends on the user’s #creativity to make great uses of it. Also, I just have a hunch, it can be a good idea, it can totally be a bad Idea.
So, as a product at Twitter’s Scale with millions of active users every moment, a hunch must be taken seriously more than anything else. If I would own @Twitter, I would have invested in my own hunch of allowing users to Rearrange tweets, add tweets in the beginning, or in the middle of the Tweet Thread / Tweetstorm.
Why doesn’t it seem logical to some extent?
- Tweet Storm is felt like a sequence of events that happened in a particular sequence.
- It’s felt like a Timeline that tells you, the things as they happened.
But, Twitter, in the beginning, changed the way people used blogging platforms and it created a market of its own kind called microblogging. It can again change the way; the things are used now.
Technically, it’ll just need to build the best possible tools around its own product and let people use their #creativity to make the best use of it.
Okay, improvising further.
@Twitter’s tweetstorm experience is broken. Writing a 20 tweets tweetstorm is much like hustling between data in multiple excel sheets. Solution?
Allow me to write a blog then allow me to convert it to a tweet storm with cool visual tools
- On web
- On Mobile
Come on Dear Product Managers at Twitter, is that too much to ask for
- Don’t we all love Twitter?
- Won’t we all like it to help us more in our daily lives.
- Won’t twitter too gain from the enhanced user experience.
Do let me know your views on the same in comments.
By problem, I most probably mean the opportunity which the product I am writing about would probably enhance user experience. I’ve been inspired by Sir Alok Kejriwal by his daily writing habits. I am also looking for Product Management Opportunities.
While writing this particular TweetStorm, I also felt a shortcoming in the tweetstorm feature. I’ve written almost 10tweets in a row, none posted yet. Even now, I can’t add, one to its first/2nd/nth position But nope, I rediscovered @twitter and its tweetstorm feature.
While I am still writing and editing the storm, It’s #possible to add one tweet in the middle though, the same + (add) button at the bottom, add the tween at n+1th position where n is current cursor position.
Though, it wasn’t quite obvious but OK, I must call it a hidden feature. Wasn’t obvious, right ? OR I am quite dumb?
Can I please get some credit for writing this? Okay Fine RT Share? OR Connect with PM Opportunities?
