I’m convinced Twitter needs a complete rewrite

… from scratch. Yeah the performance is incredibly horrible and I really feel like I could take a small chunk of that $15 million and immediately make the performance rock, but I am starting to feel like the developers who built it complete cocked it all up. The damn thing can’t even store my replies right and I’ve heard others complain of this. I take it is bad AJAX code and I think they should reconsider using AJAX for basic functions.

I replied to @benwills‘ tweet :


but if you click on the ” in reply to benwills” link in my reply it goes to the wrong tweet.

    It happens because you can reply only to the last tweet from a user, so in this example benwills had a more recent tweet and he got stored.

    Oh thanks for clearing that up.

    Retarded way for the code to behave nonetheless.
