Is this why they didn’t fix a lot of old Twitter issues?

Old Twitter has dozens of outstanding issues that have been lingering, many for months. Some they have made half-hearted, half fixes on—and now we might know why!

Product manager Josh Elman said that he expects Twitter will be more like Google than Facebook — a destination for quick visits rather than extended time-wasting and engagement sessions.

The New Architecture

This is an all-new architecture for the website, featuring:

  1. Greater responsiveness/faster;
  2. A more stable architecture;
  3. The new website is based on the API (what Twitter clients run off of) and API limits will be going away.
  4. Built on the @anywhere platform.

What’s NOT included

  1. Multiple accounts still NOT supported via web.
  2. Team features & analytics NOT available via website…yet.

The Official New Website Video

Twitter is a breaking news outlet, not a social network, says VP Kevin Thau. And the reason the Annotations feature was put on hold was because the infrastructure team was working on the launch, Ryan Sarver, Twitter’s platform team, said.
