6 Reasons to Stop Using Twitter

Twitter is a one of the most popular social networks in the world. It lets anyone share their thoughts and internet findings — as long as they can deliver them 140 characters at a time. Twitter gives everyone a voice, whether you’re a mega-star like Katy Perry or a kid with an internet connection. But like most online services, Twitter isn’t perfect. It turns out there are plenty of reasons to stop using Twitter altogether. Since we’ve already gone over how to delete your Twitter account, now is as good a time as any to look at the reasons why you might want to do just that.

If you use Twitter primarily to see articles people are sharing, you don’t need to spend time swiping through Twitter to find them. That’s because there’s Nuzzel, an app that curates the stories shared by the people you follow on Twitter. All you have to do is give the app permission to access your Twitter account, and it gathers all the web links people share in one easy-to-read feed.

The stories are listed in order of the number of times your friends shared them. That means the biggest stories on your Twitter feed shoot right to the top, where you’re most likely to see them.

Another useful feature is that it does the same for the articles shared by the friends of your friends, so you can stay on top of what’s important to people in your extended network. In short, Nuzzel can save a ton of time you’d otherwise spend sifting through the cruft of Twitter to find the gems.
