Maybe it's too soon for me to say no to Twitter which is recently the gargantuan phenomenon in the United States. I haven't tried it yet. By the way, that's the case : i couldn't try it because it doesn't permit me to do so. Here's the (brief) story :
As usual, when I heard something 'bam boom' like the phemenon of Facebook, I eager to try it. The same went to the Twitter case. I think, if something is very popular, there must be anything interesting in it.
Thus, (just a few minutes before I was writing this post) I went to the website, twitter.com, and signed up in a few clicks and typos. I was impressed, even though the worse yet to come. Then, I was asked to give my email address so that they could grab contact in my email and identify if any of them has a Twitter account. After the initial setup finished, I was brought into my very own Twitter profile. So far so good, for that very moment.
A profile looks dull without a profile image, right? So I went to the profile picture page and uploaded, as usual, my green apple picture. Suddenly, I was brought into login page. I was not panicked, for the fact that some social network have to verify its user's identity. Thus, I typed in my user name and password. Guess what, those cannot match! I tried several times, but still failed to login. Then, I clicked on "Forget Password?" link. They asked for my email address so that they could reset my password. You know what? Still failed, and in a more annoying cicumstance, displayed "We couldn't find you" largely on the screen. What the heck.
I couldn't accept this, not because I couldn't login. It's simply because it's illogical. At first, they could grab my contact with my email address I provided earlier, but then they couldn't reset my password with the same email address? Ridiculous. Maybe I made mistake, but after checked and double checked and triple checked, is there any room for mistake?
To be fair, I should try Twitter later, although I should make another profile. Nevertheless, first impression do count, and Twitter, unfortunately, gave a bad one to me.
P/S: Twitter is developed using Ruby-On-Rail. I've heard this platform is not so reliable. That's why I love PHP. Huhu
