Red Meat Twitter

Besides more stability and uptime in the Twitter service, these are some of the features that I _REALLY_ need built into Twitter:

  • Web interface to “track” option. This would make it much easier to manage sms notifications to my phone.
  • Increased API access limit. 20 per hour is way too low. I would probably be satisfied with 30-60 per hour. 60 would be best.
  • Ability to Mass-block people from the web interface.
  • Historical Direct messages sent or threading of direct message conversations.
  • Shorter URL service. TinyURL is great, but I’ve seen shorter.

I do not think the above requests would alter the way Twitter functions as a whole, but would enhance its overall functionality. What features or enhancements would you like to see added added to Twitter?

Meebo has also done a great job updating its interface over the last few weeks. I had been waiting a long time for a ‘black’ colored theme, and now they have one. Good work team Meebo!

And now, in no particular order:
