New Avatars are round. What a horrible downgrade. I hope people complain enough that they are reverted back to the standard shape.

Garbage.  We all know how this went down when the CCSLC went to round avatars.

Why does this matter, other than you might want to change yours to better fit the circle?

 

 

It's essentially a fix to a problem that was never a problem.  Twitter is trying to use aesthetics as a "look we're drastically changing things" argument when the problems with twitter run much, much deeper.

Changed my avatar because I feel it's apt. Fits too:

I took a look at that twitter feed for the hell of it...

 

Are they serious or is it the most convincing joke feed ever?

Can't say for sure with that particular Twitter account, but there are a lot of people out there who do believe that the Earth is flat.

Are the problems things like idiots like me believing I'm interesting enough to have a Twitter account, or are you referring to bigger corporate and ethical type problems?

Twitter went public but nobody cared, and they've started hemorrhaging their integrity in order to keep themselves as profitable as possible and on the tongues of the general public.  Courtesy of our moron president and a bunch of alt-right Sovereign Citizen types, twitter is stuck in this impotent loop regarding accounts being racist, spreading lies/hate, etc.  

It's also denying responsibility for capitalizing/sharpening the culture of immediacy we live in today, for better (uncensored observations in the moment) and worse (out of context unmerited outrage fuel, hazing, bullying, anonymous trolling).

Fun fact: Twitter has never turned a profit (and probably never will).

Could you elaborate on the first paragraph?

 

I think the second is silly.  It's not responsible for anything, merely providing the medium for people to do what they do.

What if they increased it to 164 characters and made it so you could edit two words - but only for spelling mistakes?

As old folks like us like to say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
