    Thumbs down Twitter Sucks

    So yes Twitter.Com sucks, it's been a project that is getting far out of hand and it's a second DigitalPoint forum. After banning me twice, the first time I got not a good reason but it was related to the use of TwtAd.Com I guess, and now the second time I've been banned for 2 weeks.

    I made a support ticket on the zendesk (being on a 3rd-party website is unprofessional but since Twitter sucks it makes no big deal) I've made a support ticket two weeks ago, today I still didn't got a single reply from the staff. I bumped it once a few days ago as they might have missed it but no, still I got no answer.

    So not only they are banning people for no reason - can't find a reason why they suspended my account for the second time - and not responding to support tickets makes Twitter 'follow' (to stay in Twitter terms) DigitalPoint & Google Adsense. The reasons are beneath:

    • DigitalPoint: Twitter has been suspending a lot of members these days including me, I can't find something I did wrong neither can others. So that's a DigitalPoint clone in my opinion
    • Google Adsense: Giving totally zero support to the customers is the thing Adsense has been doing, I'm ok if I have to wait 3-4 WORKING days, but not 14 days -- that's far too much!

    All I can say about this is, bye bye Twitter. I'm moving to other websites that have better stuff than following people to read spam

    In fact I was responding and tweeting with Travis Barker (my hero ) but heck, Twitter is a chapter that passes like Facebook and all those other websites.

    I think I'm going to be a mood killer, because I agree with farrhad and I feel like remarking on a few things you guys said, on behalf of twitter.

    "Twitter is just a spammer tool"

    Well...yes and no. Some people (myself included) enjoy interacting on twitter with others and sharing useful links, ideas, etc. Other people spam. Luckily, twitter has the "unfollow" option and even a block option so you don't ever have to interact with these people.

    I know a lot of valuable people on twitter. Designers, writers, friends, who don't tweet links every 5 seconds, and the links they do tweet are great. I suggest getting tweetdeck if you want to see a better side of twitter.

    "I just tweet and don't read other tweets"

    Twitter is supposed to be interactive. You can @reply and DM people, and if used correctly, these features are essential. Interacting with people will get you more followers and help you make connections. I've found a lot of great websites from twitter, and promoted my own the right way.

    "Twitter is the new DP"

    I assume you mean the random bannings? Well, the twitter admins hate spam too. A lot of robots use twitter to randomly tweet affiliate links, scam offers, etc. In response, twitter bans and deletes suspicious accounts: i.e. accounts that follow a ton of people but don't tweet or have a lot of followers, or accounts that unfollow a lot of people, etc. etc.

    "Facebook does it better"

    Facebook added "what's on your mind" after twitter was created. Before it was just a status update. Plus, I really hate how facebook tried to emulate twitter. Both websites serve different functions, and do different things. Comparing them is like apples to asparagus, in my opinion.

    "Twitter is only useful for celebrities with 50,000 followers"

    I have only about 706 followers, but they're all cool people. Others have 10,000 followers who are just robots. It's about quality, not quantity.

    "The concept of twitter is too far gone..."

    I honestly don't think so. Every website has spam. My blog gets like 10 spam comments a day. I just weed them out and keep going. I mean, look at youtube.

    If you don't like twitter, that's chill. I'm not trying to preach about it or anything. I just think you should put the "social" part back into "social media" and give it a fair chance before knocking it.

    And get tweetdeck, because it really will make twitter more fun/helpful.

    I think that most of us skeptics would love to be proven wrong -- as we really do want new tools to help improve our lives.

    I'll put TweetDesk on my "list of new things to try."

    Agreed, thats all twitter has become is a giant spam fest of useless crap any more.

    It wasn't that fun to begin with, 140 characters is pretty low for intelligent people who like to make themselves coherent to the rest of the world and eventually it will be loaded with advertisements or you'll have to pay a fee to be a member there.

    I am considering unfollowing everyone and starting over as I do not see anything useful when I go on twitter. All links, none of the places the links lead to having anything interesting. Maybe 1 in 100 links I click is someething that I wind up sharing on Facebook and a couple of people read it.
