Chris Moyles and his Radio 1 breakfast show team have made their thoughts about the new Twitter interface very clear across the airwaves to millions of listeners. The team have complained about new tabs on their Twitter profiles, lack of highlighted mentions and a confusing Twitter activity tab. It’s not surprising that the Radio 1 team have plenty to say about the changes to Twitter, as their account @ChrisMoylesShow has nearly half a million followers and is used to regularly update fans.
Changes to the social websites that we use for business can be frustrating. Facebook regularly change their features and layouts making some information a lot harder to find and creating a lot of “social noise” that gets in the way of purposeful interactions. It can be a full time job trying to keep up with all the changes.
