Twitter Puts a Stop to Excessive Posting

Twitter is not a service that has received many updates toward improving its end-user experience, but recently it is planning to add a new feature familiar to many Facebook users. Twitter plans on targeting excessive posters and automatically hide that individual’s messages to prevent an overwhelming flood of messages to anyone following that feed. So far this feature has only been made available to a small portion of Twitter users, but will eventually be applied to its entire user base. Many users should be grateful for the upcoming addition, because the only way they could prevent excessive message notifications before was to un-follow that feed. It is not surprising that Twitter has adopted a similar feature to Facebook, seeing that both social networking sites are in fierce competition with one another.
