Twitter has injected some new features into the micro-blogging site in an effort to lure more developers, partners and - most importantly - users to the service. The privately-held company said in a blog post yesterday that it had "simplified the design" of Twitter. In fact, the firm appears to be morphing the service into more …
Let's hope they sort the searching of tweets
This has to be one of the biggest problems with twitter. Why can't I search All tweets in a geographic area via a saved search on the website?
"This has to be one of the biggest problems with twitter. "
Nah! The biggest problem with Twitter is that it exists!
poor Tweetdeck, it was so great and now it languishes buggy and unsupported no doubt to be gutted and turned into some kind of social media hub monster.
Indeed.. it was a fantastic program both on the desktop and on phones with regular updates and features people liked (deck.ly for one!) and prior to this the only update I've seen in roughly six months has been to remove deck.ly and image previews from tweets. It's made worse by the fact prior to the buyout they had mentioned a completely new version for Android as the old look had been the same for quite a while with no real improvements and now that, like many other changes, has been canned apparently. Way to go Twitter! Just kill it off if you're going to turn it into a clone of your official (and utterly useless) mobile client.

Oh, and I also saw my first tweet spam -- uh, sorry, "sponsored tweets" -- last week. Way to go, guys.
In a stupor i've tried to join twitter twice in the past few years. In each case the system was overloaded.
Why don't they fix their capacity problems before luring new children to the site.
great job twatter. do a redesign and all widgets and feeds are now broken.
this is friendster (suicidal) behaviour...
