Today I logged on to Twitter and saw a little black box pop up that said, “Twitter is better with friends.” Agh!NO!!! Don’t do it Twitter! Do not become Facebook. That is not why I go on Twitter. Just like you probably, I use it to get general news and news on niche topics. I do not need Twitter clogged by the same shit my friends say / post on Facebook. Oh wait, I don’t have any friends on Facebook because I quit Facebook last year.
The feature works the same as it does on Facebook. They offer you the ability to add friends from Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, and AOL. (Does AOL still exist??). And similar to LinkedIn they offer up “People you may know” which, by the looks of things are at least 10 people whom with you are following who are also following them.
So what do you think? Do you like the feature? Do you think it is a good benefit?
