Twitter Top Ten – 6-14-15

This week Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo stepped down effective July 1. Costolo’s exit was expected, considering the pressure he has felt from Wall Street and even one of Twitter’s biggest investors, Chris Sacca. In a lengthy open letter to Twitter management earlier this month, Sacca made a bevy of suggestions for how to improve the user experience on the microblogging service. We like many of proposals, including giving Tweets a longer shelf life. Here’s how Marketwatch sums it up:

“Sacca has a number of suggestions for how to give tweets a longer life, including introducing a save button that enables them to be archived so that a user can go back and delve into them when they have more time. He also thinks more valuable tweets – those that are being clicked on, read and shared the most – should be given priority, rather than just being shuffled under the thousands of others that stream in seconds later.”

But until we have a better Twitter, we’re happy to curate our favorite Tweets of the week for the social enterprise realm.
