The real problem with twitter's ios trending bar

Published 2011-03-21

If Twitter wants to improve the trending experience for everyone, it should change how they are calculated entirely. Rather than generating trends based on the location of a tweet, they should instead show trends related to what is happening in my timeline, who I am following and who my followers follow.

Kudos to Mr. Williams for this idea. After all, Twitter has so many tools available to curate -- the idea of followers is nothing by curation of who you interact with -- so why not tell me what is trending among those I choose to interact with?

Make it so...
