The revamp to the Twitter page accessible on computer web browsers comes as the San Francisco-based company seeks to ramp up engagement while managing abusive content.

As much as I hate to admit it, in this day and age of "instant" information and the 1 minute news cycle, removing or policing and actually being able to identify "abusive content" is something Twitter can only pay lip-service to and not actually enforce, without stepping on freedom of speech rights, for the people in most countries.

I do not like politicians, particularly one "orange" haired individual using the platform as a way to set policy or hammer on opponents. There is nothing they can do, yet if they could, I would applaud their actions!

Twitter should give us rounded square DPs. I absolutely hate the circle DPs that for whatever reason Twitter & Facebook feels like is a good option.

Nobody on the internet likes circle DPs on any website as it is aesthetically displeasing and can make your DP look awful with the way that it cuts off portions of your face..
