Marco Arment discussed his really issues with the Quick Bar that was recently added to Twitter for iOS app. I share the exact same thought as Arment:
What’s worse is that it’s shown in a context — my Twitter timeline — that otherwise contains only content that I’ve (indirectly) chosen to put there. (I’ve chosen who to follow based on what I want to see in my timeline.) I’m not interested in sports or celebrities or middle-school survey trends, so I don’t follow people who overwhelm my timeline with those unwanted topics.
My beef with the Quick Bar is two-fold:
- It loads first, so the application now takes longer to load tweets.
- I don’t and have never cared about trending topics.
