CobWEBs Daily Edition: Uhm Twitter, hate saying this but your web page – it sucks

Written by  |  under Podcasting

Welcome to another week of the daily edition of CobWEBs, the flagship podcast of The Cynical Bastards!

For those who don’t remember from the other episodes, this is a new format for the show as we are going to try giving you daily bite sized chunks of our patented brand of cynicism over everything in the tech universe. The show will have a rotating host schedule between Steven Hodson, Mark ‘Rizzn’ Hopkins and myself. You’ll always get two of us, you just never know which two!

Steven and I have a discussion tonight about … are you ready for it? … TWITTER!  I know, it is SO rare we discuss it, but it’s true.

Actually, tonight’s episode is based off of a really excellent post by Allen Stern over at CenterNetworks about how user unfriendly the Twitter Web interface.  Honestly, the article is almost shocking in how not in tune the technorati are with the common user’s experience, and Mr. Stern brilliantly dissects the problems with the interface.  Of course Steven and I use this as a launch pad for further discussion.  (links, as always, provided by Steven)

    great podcast, i love listening to steven. i can't believe that sean doesn't typically like my type of writing – now you get a noogie next time i see you :)

    anyway thanks for sharing my article – glad you found it useful.

    i do disagree with what steven said at the end about the community making the web version better – with $150 million vc, let them hire people to help. it could be the community but it shouldn't be free for twitter. same thing with how they handle the translations.
