** 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 in the middle who agree that 140 characters is too small but the increased limit should be something not so radically high.

** After the 2016 Presidential Election, Twitter's also been accused of censoring Creator/DonaldTrump's supporters, yet giving leeway to his haters. James Woods (yes, [[Disney/{{Hercules}} him]]) in particular has made his disgust crystal-clear: https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/801119236768690176

** Shadowbanning. If you do certain actions that [[GuideDangIt Twitter does not hint you should not do]] (most likely, using "fuck" when mentioning someone who doesn't follow you), your account will cease to show up in the notifications of other users, and there will be no explicit indication of this.

** If you make a new account, there is a chance that, for reasons completely alien to end-users, Twitter will lock your account for "automated activity" until you supply a phone number for verification. This can happen ''even if you've already verified via email''. Not everyone is comfortable giving their phone number out, some don't even ''have'' phone numbers (which are not free to own, in contrast to email accounts that take about five minutes to set up on one of many free services at no cost), and even those who are fine with linking their phone numbers find it annoying to have to go through this secondary verification process for what is effectively no good reason.
