Twitter, will you fix my timeline?
Margarita Noriega

I quite vehemently don’t want Twitter to curate anything algorithmically for me, but I think what we can agree on is that we both want Twitter to give us more tools to control our reading experience. The lack of ability to mute hashtags is baffling to me when third-party apps have offered it for years. Possibly Twitter is frightened of anything that would cause people to see fewer tweets, but that’s a short-sighted attitude. A more satisfying experience will keep people coming back; feeling barraged and overwhelmed won’t.
