Regarding Twitter Tweaking Users' Timelines

Stephen Hackett, in response to Twitter's decision to tweak users' timelines with popular tweets:

My Twitter timeline is relevant and interesting to me because I set it up. Twitter's genius is that people can build their own experiences; I don't want an algorithm made by a hipster developer interfering with that. One more reason to not use Twitter's official app, despite the cool new stuff they're experimenting with. What drives me nuts is when I see retweets of tweets that I myself have already shared. I see this happening all the time: someone I follow tweets something cool, I retweet it, then see someone else I follow --- who mutually follows that person --- retweet that exact tweet, and I see it in my timeline. It drives me fucking crazy.
