No bug reports on Twitter
By Dave Winer on Friday, June 08, 2012 at 10:14 PM.
If you want to tell someone that something isn't working, do not try to do it on Twitter for the simple reason that it does not work. Invariably, you have to abbreviate. Leave stuff out.  permalink
And if the person you're reporting it to has a question, he or she has to ask it in 140 chars. And somehow anticipate your confusion when you don't understand their message.  permalink
If you have something to say, and it's important, then find another place to say it. 140 characters is brutal for bug reports.  permalink
Write a blog post, post something to a mail list. If the only way you can communicate the problem is via Twitter, then skip it because it does not work. permalink
