7 Twitter Features That Should Be Added (Because They'd Totally ROCK!)

Posted 25 June, 2015



I LOVE Twitter!

Before the Internet, I hardly knew anyone outside my circle of friends (in my small hometown). 

Today, I can talk to anyone in the world. And I have.

I've chatted with stars like Alyssa Milano, and she even tweeted me back. (pretty cool!)

You could say my life has changed dramatically since I got online, and you'd be right.

I owe my entire career to Twitter.

But while Twitter is my favorite platform, I do see areas where improvements could make a huge difference.

In fact, I think my ideas below would make it even more awesome than it already is.

So, what do you think? Let's dream a little together!

Check out my top 7 Twitter wishes and then tell me what you would add to the list.

7 Twitter Features That Should Be Added (Because They'd Totally ROCK!)

1. Reconfigure the mobile app to accommodate pinned tweets

I love being able to pin a Tweet to the top of my stream. But pinned tweets don't work with the Twitter mobile app. Wouldn't it be cool if they did?

C'mon Twitter, anything's possible -- right?

2. Make it possible to arrange my Twitter Lists

I have over 50 Twitter Lists and going through them is a hassle -- since they are organized by time of creation.

I would like to be able to rearrange my Lists according to my own criteria... and change them at will.

3. Give businesses separate accounts

It’s time for Twitter to consider giving business owners separate accounts.


(Twitter would also be able to better target marketing for ads to these accounts.)

4. Make it easy to switch between Twitter accounts

I manage several different Twitter accounts daily. I'll bet you do too.

Logging in and logging out of them is a hassle. It would be great if I could easily switch between accounts in a single click.

Hey, Twitter, can you make it happen? Toggle me up!

5. Give us a way to schedule tweets right from Twitter

Facebook introduced the schedule feature a few years back.

I’m wondering why Twitter hasn’t considered this yet -- seeing that most businesses are scheduling their tweets anyway.

Twitter, there must be a good reason...inquiring minds want to know what it is?

6. Launch a news-reading feature

I get 99.9% of my news from Twitter.

Twitter should consider an app that will allow me to load up my Twitter Lists or Twitter accounts and have immediate access to the news (without having to leave Twitter).

7. Provide a quick and easy way to highlight favorite tweeters

One feature I would really love to see within Twitter is the ability to highlight or favorite a Twitter user so I won’t miss their tweets.

Twitter could send a pop-up when my favorites are active.

C'mon, Twitter, I know you can do it!

In Conclusion - What are Your Suggestions for Twitter?

Here's the list of my ideas:

  • Seeing pinned tweets on mobile
  • Rearranging Twitter Lists
  • Having a business account
  • Switching between Twitter accounts
  • Scheduling tweets
  • Being able to read news
  • Highlighting users

I think these features would make the platform even more powerful and addictive.

In the end, it would keep people on Twitter longer. That's a win-win in my opinion.

What do you think? And what would you add to the list?

I'm listening and so is the Twitter small business team. Let's give them the feedback they need to make the improvements we want to see!
