Today is not a good day for Twitter truthers.
For months now, Twitter has hinted that some major changes are coming to its service. Users have been left to ask, will feeds no longer be dictated by each user’s personal curation, instead placed under the tyranny of Facebook-style algorithms? Where once there was an indispensable firehose of real-time news updates, will users be greeted instead by a wasteland of Ice Bucket Challenge videos? Will Twitter cease to be Twitter at all?
Today, the company went into more detail than ever before about how it plans to revamp its service in order to attract new users to the platform, which has seen only modest growth since going public, much to the chagrin of Wall Street. The verdict? Yes, Twitter is going to evolve. It must in order to survive. But it will hopefully do so without alienating its longtime power users.
