Most Annoying Things About Twitter

Don’t get me wrong, Twitter is probably my favourite social media site or at least one of them, but just like everything else, it does have its flaws, so feel free to add anything I’ve missed.

The Top Ten

1 Way too much drama

Most of the drama that happens online is probably from Twitter. - 3DG20

Those hashtags... - Ananya

2 A lot of the cyber bullying happens on Twitter

Every website has cyber bullying, but I believe Twitter has it the worst. - 3DG20

3 You can’t turn off notifications for some things

It’s an option for some things such as whenever someone posts, but I find it kind of annoying how no site lets you turn “like” notifications off. - 3DG20

4 You get notifications when someone likes replies to your comments

Someone replied to my comment criticizing a band I like and doesn’t bother giving a single reason, yet 8 people have liked it. Yes, there’s a limited amount of characters you can put in a reply, but 280 is more than enough to give one reason. It really annoys me when people do that. - 3DG20

I agree so much with this. All this does is piss the person off who made the original comment. - mattstat716

5 You can’t put more than 4 options on polls

Most of my polls would probably have more than 4 options if you could do that. - 3DG20

6 Polls can’t be votable for more than 7 days

You can still comment on it after 7 days, but it would be nice to be able to have them run longer because I’d still accept answers after 7 days. - 3DG20

7 You don’t get a notification when someone votes on your poll

This is one of the things I want notifications for. I post them so I can get people’s opinions. - 3DG20

8 Videos can’t be longer than 140 seconds

It’s much better than nothing, but it’s a little annoying when you want to share a video and it’s longer than that, so you have to put it into parts. - 3DG20

9 You can’t use more than 280 characters in tweets

But yet spamming "enter" to flood 1/2 the page with nothing is perfectly okay

okay then - mattstat716

I only voted because I forgot to explain this item, and as I’ve already mentioned, not giving reasons for things is a pet peeve of mine. I’m the type of person that will probably write long comments for some things, especially if I’m writing an opinion and I’ll run out of characters. - 3DG20

10 A lot of the users shove their political views down your throat

It feels like politic rants about how bad (insert politician) is are everywhere on Twitter. It’s really annoying. - 3DG20

I don’t go on Twitter to see political wars - Randomator

The Contenders

11 You can’t edit tweets

I hate it when you make a typo and don’t realize it until it’s already up. - 3DG20

12 Suspended for no reason

Yeah give me my account back NOW - sadical

13 Way too many hashtags

It may not be as bad as Instagram, but it feels as though people on Twitter are obsessed with them... - 3DG20

14 Crybabies

Lots of cocky and despicable users that judge a whole group of people based on their skin yet calls themselves victims.

15 “Retweet or Bad Luck” Tweets

Nobody will fall for these. Only people who are desperately looking for attention will tweet these in the first place - Randomator

16 “Like for This Retweet for That” Tweets

I’m confused do these people not know polls exist or what? - Randomator

17 Typos
18 Too many clown memes
