I disagree with this. Twitter is no Instagram. People use it as a way to express opinions, not showcasing lifestyles. This has been proven to the extent that many trading platforms use Twitter as a data point and there are some algorithmic traders that use it as an input to make automated trade decisions. This includes Bloomberg, the biggest trading information system in the world. https://www.bloomberg.com/company/announcements/bloomberg-launches-twitter-feed-optimized-trading/
I can't comment on this implementation, but there's definitely valuable societal data in Twitter.
Hey Lewis. Amazing list! Bookmarked. I love that you went for a straight-forward layout instead of adding unnecessary complexity that other people add to similar websites... By the way. Would you consider adding my website: Waveguide - I try my best to share valuable knowledge and design examples, so I hope it fits your criteria. Either way. Great job! Keep it up!
Yes. That's true. It's limited to specific use cases.
Nice! I like that solution.
Snappr looks nice. Never tried it but it seems to be a good place to find specialized photographers: https://www.snappr.co/
The problem is those sketchy sellers that would abuse the heck out of a system like the one described in the article (in the same way they abuse the existing review system). Just buy your competitor's product and report it doesn't work anymore. Rinse and repeat.
Facebook uses this pattern but it's not an actual footer because their widget stays fixed to the top of the screen. Users would have more trouble identifying that as the footer.
It's a subtle difference but Medium's implementation stays fixed to the bottom, which makes their approach visually and layout-wise more similar to an actual footer. Their pseudo-footer is spatially closer to where an actual footer is supposed to be and this makes it easier to find and distinguish from other navigational elements.
Twitter doesn't use this pattern. They keep the footer under the "Who to follow" widget, but that widget is not a sticky widget.
Once you are several screen folds down, there's no way to see the side footer anymore. You need to scroll up to the top again. I always wondered why they did it like that. Their feed has a lot of available screen real estate on both sides. I would have recommended keeping that widget sticky, but I'm sure they have a reason.
Right now it's just me (side project). But I'm giving a $10 USD Amazon gift card to anyone who wants to document and write a Wave.
