Twitter is a site for social networking that has been around since 2006. People tell others what they are doing by sending “tweets.” It was made by Evan Williams, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Jack Dorsey. Before making the service, they were working on Odeo, a list of podcasts.
When iTunes 4.9 came out, it made Odeo a thing of the past. The people who started the business then made a service called Twttr. In the end, Twitter would be called Twitter. If you can believe it, iTunes 4.9 led to the creation of one of the most popular social networks in the world.
The South by Southwest Interactive conference in 2007 was a big turning point in the popularity of the service. Over the next few years, Twitter’s popularity grew quickly. At first, it used third-party apps for mobile devices. In 2010, Twitter bought an app maker called Atebits. Tweetie, a Twitter app for the Mac and iPhone, was made by Atebits. It got a new name, Twitter, and was made available for free.
Different changes have been made to the apps over time. There are versions for iOS, but desktop users have to use the web interface or a third-party app like Tweetbot or Twitterrific.
People who use Twitter complain that they see tweets from accounts they don’t follow.
This year, Twitter released an update that made it so that every time a user opened the app, they had to see the “For You” tab with suggested tweets. Later, the platform changed its mind, but it looks like Twitter has found another way to annoy its users. This time, a lot of people are upset that the “For You” tab on Twitter shows too much content from accounts they don’t follow.
Twitter is still down, and there is a new policy about “wishes of harm.”
Many people have said that neither the app nor the website for Twitter is working. Others have been able to use the service, but with delays.
Downdetector shows that the problem was at its worst around 5:30 a.m. EST and was getting better about 30 minutes later, but many users were still having trouble.
Bluesky, Jack Dorsey’s Twitter-like app, is now on the App Store, but you still need an invite to use it.
Jack Dorsey was a co-founder of Twitter and its first CEO. He left the company in May 2022 after talks with Elon Musk. Since then, he has been working on Bluesky, a new decentralized social network that will compete with Twitter. The official release of the Bluesky app in the iOS App Store happened this week, but there’s a catch. To use it, you still need to be invited.
