Okay, everybody hates the brand new tweet view counts – or not a lot hates them, as an idea, however hates the way in which that they’re displayed, which at the moment produces most of these double line stat summaries.
Folks additionally don’t like that views are displayed first, on the left of the tweet information show, and Elon himself has admitted that it’s not great, as but.
As you may see right here, this up to date format wouldn’t show view counts on tweets in timelines (first picture), however when expanded, you’ll have the ability to see the view rely on any tweet.
Which appears higher, although Elon appears fairly satisfied that highlighting view counts particularly will assist individuals higher perceive how a lot attain their tweets are getting, which, in flip, will encourage extra tweet creation and exercise.
I’m unsure that’s true. I imply, do you actually need to know that a couple of thousand individuals noticed your tweet, and never a single one among them felt compelled to offer it a like? Unsure that’ll be the motivational increase that Elon expects – however then once more, in the event you actually like consideration, and also you need to make sure you get extra of it, then figuring out that numerous persons are at the very least seeing your tweets may very well be a consider holding you tweeting.
It appears probably extra bother than its price, with individuals trying to make use of this as a brand new tweet ratio, of kinds, with which to criticize you on your poor tweet engagement.
Nevertheless it if had been simply one other stat, and proven solely in expanded tweet type, that may very well be higher. Perhaps.
We’ll have to attend and see what Twitter does subsequent with the format.
