** After the 2016 Presidential Election, Twitter's also been accused of censoring Creator/DonaldTrump's supporters, yet giving leeway to his haters. Creator/JamesWoods, in particular, had this to say: https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/801119236768690176

** 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.
** Previously, if you blocked a user, the only indications they would see are that they're inexplicably not following you anymore (if they were following you) and that they receive a "you've been blocked" notification if they try to follow you again, things they would only notice if they were following you or tried to follow you. Now, blocking them gives the blockee a "You are blocked from folllowing ''(user)'' and viewing ''(user)''[='=]s tweets" screen when they attempt to view your profile from an official Twitter client, making the block more obvious since they don't have to follow you anymore to find out. Some users, when blocked, will take screenshots of the block screen and post it, either to complain about it or mock the person who made the block, making a setup for {{Flame War}}s and other kinds of harassment.

The "You Might Be Interested In..." feature faces similar problems, especially since it will even sometimes recommend users that you're already following. That doesn't even get into the fact that the there is really no option you're given to simply turn this feature these features off doesn't work.
entirely, only a "Show me less like this" option that will turn them off temporarily, but it ''will'' turn them on again sometime days later.

* FanHater: There was once a "Ban One Direction Fans From Twitter" trend. Yes, because a particular fandom is totally a higher priority than issues such as harassment or bigotry.

** 2015 and 2016 saw what some saw an increasingly obvious bias in favour of people on the political left over the political right, which manifested in multiple right-wing pundits having their accounts suspended and being forced to remove tweets, while leftists are frequently allowed to tweet what is perceived to be whatever they please. Came to a head in 2016, where [[http://heatst.com/culture-wars/conservative-writer-kassy-dillon-suspended-from-twitter-for-repeating-leslie-jones/ a Conservative writer was suspended... for quoting tweets made by actress Leslie Jones exactly as she wrote them.]] Meanwhile, a troll account that harassed the writer has yet to receive punishment for posting slurs at her.

** The upgrade to API 1.1 and the "Display Requirements" that came with it has not made some people, especially developers, happy.
