Help #BuyTwitter build a better website

Danny Spitzberg Public Seen by 99

Hi, birdies!

In day or two, Twitter releases its quarterly earnings report. Good, bad, or ugly, many frustrated shareholders will look to #WeAreTwitter #BuyTwitter and find our organizing effort to save the platform.

To get ready for the next big wave of serious attention when then earnings report comes out, a small group of us are building a website – check out http://buytwitter.org

Today, we could really use support making it more effective at converting curious people into eager birdies. We especially need help with front-end design (look & feel and responsiveness).

Thoughts about the website, strategy, or anything else? Comment below!

Is our website good enough? Closed Sun 30 Apr 2017

Hi, friends

Thanks to the brilliant work on strategy, writing, re-writing, designing, and developing from Emily, Sam, Maira, Josh, Nathan, Spencer, Paige, Keith, Ethan, David and others – and thanks also to 24 people who gave feedback – we have a website!

Check out the site via https://twitter.com/BuyThisPlatform/status/857781224252690432

But before we push it out to thousands of people who have signed up for updates, we want it to do its job.

Do you think it's good enough to get votes, tweets, and positive attention? And, will you share it?

Do you see ways it could be more effective?

Although I note something odd about the petition numbers, it says "5,271 Users Signed...
Only 1929 until our goal of 4,003"

Move "We propose Twitter study ways to build user loyalty and increase shareholder value, through broad-based ownership and accountability."
To the next section after announcing the vote

Piece of related feedback. Just embedded the widget on the sidebar of the P2P Foundation Blog but I think it'd be a hell of a lot more eye catching with a small illustration/logo at the top. Also, isn't it possible to have a link to the site, not just the hashtag (no idea how this widget was generated). Cheers!

Hmmm...can't seem to change my vote?

Here's the thing...it read choppy on the mobile....no transition I guess. Overall looks much better on a desktop, which avoids the transition problem because both sections are visible at the same time..so I would retract the "move" I suggested above. And change my vote to agree :)

Hmmm, maybe this modification?

"We propose the Board require a study of...."

"Twitter" isn't the do-er, it's the product of the doing.
