Who is on twitter here ?[quote=", post:, topic:"]
IF you ever feel overwhelmed by the number of inane updates on Twitter, you’re not alone — it seems even the website’s staff get the s--ts with it occasionally.
This afternoon a message from the official Twitter account gently lambasted users for flooding a discussion with useless updates.
Twitter had asked for feedback on a small design change to include a search tool on the homepage.
“If you’re seeing the new sidebar search, please send feedback to @twitter and include #sidey in your tweet,” said the first message.
After a deluge of posts ranging from useless to beyond useless – including people posting just “sidey”, saying hello to “sidey” or announcing that “sidey rocks!” – Twitter clarified its request.
“You don’t need to @twitter #sidey just to say that you have the sidebar search,” said an apparently frustrated staff member.
“(Thanks, though. Just tell us what you *think* of it.”
