* CriticalResearchFailure: ''Twitter'' has always displayed what the trending hashtags are on the sidebar, but starting around ''2015'', they've actively started to add their own comments to the hashtags displayed in the sidebar... However, the sheer number of times they've commented on a hashtag ''without checking what the Hashtag being discussed is actually about'' is staggering. This can get so obnoxious at times that some have actively started setting their home regions to other languages so they don't have to put up with their occasional stupidity. [[note]]Twitter doesn't comment on hashtags in other languages, instead using the system from before they started their comments up.[[/note]]

** Let's just say, old users were not happy in changing the Fave stars to Like hearts in 3 November 2015.

** There's been a rather large backlash towards the change in how timelines are organized, going from chronological to using a popularity-based algorithm. Many have pointed out how this would cause countless users to be overshadowed by big-name brands & celebrities, with small businesses/creators/accounts being left in the dust.

** In 2016, rumors sprang about that Twitter is planning to raise the character limit from 140 to 10,000. Some users hope it's true, due to 140 characters being a very limited space in most languages, others think it's excessive and could, among other things, open new doors to harassment and completely change the dynamic of Twitter, arguing that those who want to write a lot should just use sites like [[http://twitlonger.com Twitlonger]] or make proper blogs instead. Then there are those who agree that 140 characters is too small but the increased limit should be something not so radically high.

** Averted with TheBeautifulGame. When TheWorldCup was on, it was heavily trended even among American twitterers.

** The "While You Were Away" mechanic introduced in the second half of 2015. In theory, it can be good, as it selects some of the tweets you might be most interested in seeing and moves them up to a section above your main timeline. However, many people have complained about the feature's poor implementation, as it frequently causes the tweets on your main timeline to be presented in the wrong order or to be missing entirely. That doesn't even get into the fact that the option you're given to turn this feature off doesn't work.

** Related again to API, the poll feature. Those on Twitter Web Client as well as official mobile clients can use them just fine, but woe betide you if you are using a third-party client, or even the second-party [=TweetDeck=], as polls are not supported in those clients. There is no indication in those clients that a tweet contains a poll, and since most users use official clients, they may not be aware of this and as such will not indicate accordingly whenever their tweets contain polls.

* DudeNotFunny: After the Newtown shooting, one troll flat out crossed the line by pretending to be the shooter on Twitter (@Blastinkids) and saying he enjoyed killing them. His account is currently suspended.
