On Thursday, Twitter announced a series of minor updates to the platform to make it easier for users to follow news and events, expecting, one can only assume, someone would want these new features.
no thanks, cheers

What ever could make Twitter users happy? It’s a mystery Twitter is still trying to solve. Could it possibly be more breaking news in the feed?
I already have my own sort of breaking news feed of media I’ve chosen. Why not get rid of the Nazis and propaganda bots instead? And have a less intimidating report system for Germany?

What if I don’t want to see breaking news?? How can I delete them from my timeline/explore section?

You guys will do literally everything but what your users ask for

Hmmmmmm, if only they would communicate more clearly…
No thanks. I just want the tweets of the people I follow, in chronological order. Nothing else.
I don’t mind ads. I don’t mind paying. But I do not want my screen cluttered up with stuff I didn’t ask for.

how about: the timeline consists of tweets and retweets by the people I follow, in the order that they were tweeted or retweeted, and literally nothing else
I would PAY for this, guys

I just wanna be able to edit my tweets within the first 10-20 seconds of sending it. I don’t ask for much.

Nobody wants this. Please give us back a simple chronological timeline to scroll through at our leisure. What was so wrong with that before?
